Activities, Athletics and Events Status

Note:  Currently, PSD facilities are not available to rent by community groups. This allows district staff time to optimize health, safety, and cleaning protocols . PSD will re-evaluate this decision after first quarter. PSD's outdoor facility spaces are open for PSD athletics use only. Each school has submitted a plan to the district that details how coaches and athletes will comply with COVID-19 guidance, requirements and orders regarding recreation.


Fall athletics 

Middle school 

PSD has made the difficult decision to delay the start of middle school athletics for the 2020-21 school year. The hope is it will resume after the holiday break in early January, with a modified season for all ten sports.

The hard decision followed careful consideration of the needs of student athletes, the logistics of the middle school sports program, and health and safety recommendations/guidance from local and state public health officials, along with review of CHSAA guidelines.
