It was all COVID Tuesday night at the Clinton Board of Education meeting.
What will the landscape of high school sports look like this year? What happens if the Governor sends all schools to remote learning? Superintendent Curt Nettles indicates it has been advised heavily by representatives of the district to not participate in winter sports.
According to athletic director Matt Koeppel, the only sports allowed to participate in activities this winter have been cheerleading, dance and swimming. At the end of the meeting, it was announced the IHSA is pausing all high school sports until further notice.
Keoppel says most athletic administrators he talks to are taking a similar approach to Clinton and are being given similar advice.
After the Governor's announced recommending all youth sports activities be paused, the IHSA followed suit and announced a pause in the winter sports season.
The Board of Education also discussed how ready each school building is for remote learning should that become necessary. The district has already had several classrooms and even the high school shut down temporarily this school year due to COVID.
