FROM THE MHS ATHLETIC DIRECTOR On Tuesday (7/21) the MIAA (Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association) Board of Directors unanimously voted to delay the start (try-outs/practices) of fall athletics until Monday, September 14th. This date will ensure athletics do not begin until schools are back in session. While the MIAA has announced this start date, this too may change based on yet-to-be released guidelines and direction from the EEA (Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, the DESE (Department of Elementary and Secondary Schools), and Governor Baker's office. We are told that sometime in early August, we can expect what (and when) fall sports (if any) can be played at the high school and middle school level. This report will follow transportation guidance for schools from the DESE expected to be released later this week. Please stay tuned for updates that we will disseminate as we receive them.
