Uniontown USD 235 will follow the protocols put in place by the Kansas State High School Activities Association in regard to attendance and face coverings. The exact wording of the KSHSAA policy is found below.
Please contact HS Principal Mike Reith or HS Athletic Director Jim Mason if you have any further questions.
If the event is outdoors there are currently not any rules limiting the number of spectators. However, the face covering rules below will apply at all KSHSAA-sponsored events.
All participants (including but not limited to athletes, coaches, officials, spectators, support staff and all others attending/participating in school activities) shall wear a face covering in the manner it is intended to be worn (for purpose of COVID-19 risk mitigation) while at the event venue and for duration of the event. The only exception is provided for athletes during the time they are competing and for officials during active play. Participants and/or officials may choose to wear a mask during active play unless it poses a safety risk.
(New 3/23/21): KSHSAA Executive Board interpretation (March 23, 2021): Any participant (including but not limited to athletes, coaches, officials, spectators, support staff and all others attending/participating in school activities) outdoors, who is able to maintain a minimum of six feet of social distancing would not be required to wear a face covering. Adherence to a more restrictive local health authority or school district policy is supported and expected.
