Bronchos News · Athletics Update — January 11, 2021


Good Morning Bronchos and Happy New Year,

As many of you are aware, the current MDHHS order is set to expire this Friday.  I would anticipate updates as the week progresses in regards to this information, but wanted to share our potential plan with all of you in the event that it is NOT extended and organized sports are allowed to resume.  Please note, if the order is extended, we will be obligated to follow the information provided at that time.  Below is a sport specific breakdown of our practice times for each winter sport that is currently suspended.  I have also included the coach’s contact information for you to reach out to them with any questions.

****Athletes must have a physical (or MHSAA Sports Health Questionnaire, when applicable) on file with the athletic office prior to participating in any practice.  Physical forms or questionnaires can be sent electronically to casey.lombard@hask12.org.  Athletes must have all of their forms (both parent and student) completed and signed off on in FinalForms prior to practices.

****Based on the current guidance, all coaches and athletes will be required to wear a face mask while in attendance and participating in practices and competitions.  Please remember to also bring your own water bottles, hand sanitizer, and towels as well as sharing of equipment is prohibited.

****Updated competition schedules can be found by downloading the Activity Scheduler app on your handheld device and searching Holly High School.
