In case you missed it: Southwestern Maine Activities Association “For Immediate Release - Thursday, August 20, 2020”: Southwestern Maine Activities Association postpones in-person interscholastic athletics until Tuesday, September 8, 2020 On Wednesday, August 19, 2020, the Cumberland and York County superintendents voted to delay in-person interscholastic athletics to a date no sooner than Tuesday, September 8. This date represents the official start date the MPA announced in July. We are awaiting word from the MPA on the status of the Fall Sports Season and what that may look like. SMAA schools cannot risk a further delay to the start of the school year by holding athletic programming on school grounds for two weeks prior to the start of school (MPA Phase 4 summer conditioning program). By delaying until September 8th, SMAA schools can focus on starting the school year and open schools without the fear of on campus transmission occurring through our own sports programs prior to that. With MPA guidance due to arrive next week, SMAA schools will be able to determine next steps regarding the fall sports season with a full understanding of what the season will look like. This will allow the association and its member schools an opportunity to develop a comprehensive plan for interscholastic athletics that may have reduced or canceled interscholastic seasons.

A message from our SHS Civil Rights Team: As members of a racially diverse and welcoming campus, we, the Sanford Civil Rights Team, stand in solidarity with the black community as we mourn the senseless murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. By ignoring this act of racism, we become complicit in perpetuating racism. In acknowledging this act for what it is, we can begin to have open conversations about race. We believe conversation, especially difficult conversation, builds empathy, creates allies, and communicates to all who feel persecuted that they are not alone.
Hope all is well. Happy Friday! Another successful week of distance learning. A letter to families regarding the end-of-the-school year can be found at this link: https://5il.co/g5ji Have a great weekend.
