All extracurricular practices and contests will be conducted following safety protocol provided by guidance from Wichita Falls ISD, UIL and TEA. This will include COVID-19 screening, group sizes, sharing & sanitizing of equipment, locker room usage, etc.
Students will be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities in keeping with TEA, UIL and WFISD guidelines regardless of instructional setting. Students who choose to learn virtually will be allowed to attend scheduled practices and events before or after school with permission of the coach, sponsor, or campus administrator. Students who choose to learn virtually and who are enrolled in school day classes that are tied to extracurricular participation will continue to be enrolled in the class. Coaches and sponsors will provide instruction for these students remotely in preparation for participation in before/after school practices and events. For example, a student learning at home who is enrolled in the football class period will meet virtually with coaches during that class period each day and attend practice before/after school. No transportation to or from before/after school practices or activities will be provided. When possible, secondary school events, clubs, and meetings will be conducted virtually. Health and safety protocols will be followed at all district sponsored events and activities. All UIL eligibility requirements will continue to be in place and followed. Parents and students choosing the remote learning option will need to communicate with the appropriate campus staff (music director, athletic coach, cheer coach, drill team instructor, etc.) of their intention to participate.
Note: If a student has chosen the remote learning option and has practice before school, it will be his or her responsibility to be home in time to log in for online courses.
