Elmore City-Pernell Guidelines for Summer Athletics/Activities (Click for printable copy)
Oklahoma enters Phase 3 on June 1st, 2020. Upon this date, Elmore City-Pernell Public Schools will utilize the following guidelines supplied by the National Federation of High School Sports (NFHS) in conducting summer activities. ECP has also consulted info from the CDC, OSSAA, and the State of Oklahoma in devising this plan. The safety and health of our students and employees is top priority. This plan is subject to change as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
Pre- Workout/Contest Screening:
• Any person who has had a fever or cold symptoms in the previous 24 hours should not be allowed to take part in workouts and should contact his or her primary care provider or other appropriate healthcare professional.
May 4, 2020
As the official close of the school year draws near, we are receiving an increased number of calls regarding summer activities, what will be allowed and not allowed for the students, coaches, and directors.
While we felt that it was important to establish statewide guidance for activities during the school year regarding the Covid-19 situation, we feel that it is equally important to provide some guidance for the start of our summer activities.
Even though our state has started the “re-opening” process, we feel it is important for our member school facilities to remain closed until at least June 1. This will give us enough time to review data from our state and local government entities, our health-care professionals, and the other national sports and activities governing bodies. Based on the information we have at that time, we could adjust the June 1 date and/or add or relax restrictions to the summer activities regulations. Our focus has become doing all we can do to help preserve the opening of schools and activities in the fall.
Also, two links are below. One gives information about an NFHS-Sponsored organization that provides students an SAT/ACT Prep course at an inexpensive cost. Please share this information with your students and their families.
The other link addresses questions we have received regarding the NCAA Eligibility Center and any adjustments made to the initial-eligibility certification process due to the pandemic. We hope this information is useful as you provide information to your students aspiring to the next level of participation.
We will continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation and will update this page when and if changes need to be made.
April 20, 2020 -- EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY
As we continue to monitor COVID-19 and the effects on activities and the safer at home restrictions continue to be in the place, the OSSAA Staff has determined coaches and directors will be permitted to provide activity specific instruction to their respective students. Workouts and instruction may only be provided to participants via a virtual platform. This would include virtual tryouts.
We appreciate your patience as we navigate the changing circumstances.
