High School Sports Update

Montgomery County Schools has been closely monitoring the rise of COVID-19 cases in the county. Due to continued concerns about COVID-19, Montgomery County Schools feels it is necessary to postpone the beginning of Phase One of Return to Sports that was scheduled to begin on Tuesday, July 7 pending school board approval.

In NC, Montgomery County has been identified as one of four counties that is considered a “tipping point” for the coronavirus. For the safety of our student-athletes, we believe that the postponement of practices is in the best interest of our students and their families, and ultimately the best decision based upon available data.

We will continue to monitor the data in our county in order to develop a safe plan for the return of our student-athletes.
