A Letter from the Desk of Mr. Wright, Principal                                                                                                                                                                             December 4, 2020

Greetings Spartan Families,

This is Mr. Wright with a special message and update regarding our Spartan athletic and extra-curricular programs. The safety of all students, staff, and families remains my number one priority. On December 1st, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) issued a statewide press release as follows: “Due to the continued surge in COVID-19 infections, the California Department of Public Health has postponed the issuance of its updated youth sports guidance. The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) does not expect the CDPH will issue any guidance allowing for schools to return to full practice and competition until after January 1, 2021, at the earliest. Thus, all full practice and competition start dates are officially on hold until updated guidance is issued.”

Due to the specific number of rising cases in Los Angeles County, particularly in the Northeast San Fernando Valley, the launch of our after school Spartan Athletics Conditioning program will not launch until after January 11 at the earliest. As a reminder, there are currently no in-person, school-sponsored athletic practices or extra-curricular activities sanctioned by Sylmar Charter High School. Participation in non-school sponsored activities, does not have any bearing on a student’s good standing with any Spartan athletic team or school group. It is the recommendation that all families follow the current “Safer at home” order, and continue to practice appropriate screening, sanitation, and social distancing protocols as recommended by state and local public health agencies. Students, staff, or family members who become aware of any team or student gatherings being conducted by a school representative should notify the school administration immediately.

Stay safe and #SpartanStrong.

Thank you.

Rodney Wright

 

Una carta del escritorio de Sr. Wright, Director                                                                                                                                                                 el 4 de diciembre de 2020

Saludos Familias Espartanas,

Este es el Sr. Wright con un mensaje especial y una actualización sobre nuestros programas deportivos y extracurriculares Espartanas. La seguridad de todos los estudiantes, el personal y las familias sigue siendo mi prioridad número uno. El 1 de diciembre, la Federación Interescolar de California (CIF) emitió un comunicado de prensa estatal de la siguiente manera: “Debido al aumento continuo de las infecciones por COVID-19, el Departamento de Salud Pública de California pospuso la publicación de su guía actualizada sobre deportes juveniles. La Federación Interescolar de California (CIF) no espera que el CDPH emita ninguna guía que permita a las escuelas regresar a la práctica y competencia completas hasta después del 1 de enero de 2021, como muy pronto. Por lo tanto, todas las fechas de inicio de la competencia y los entrenamientos completos están oficialmente en espera hasta que se emita una guía actualizada ".

Debido al número específico de casos en aumento en el condado de Los Ángeles, particularmente en el noreste del valle de San Fernando, el lanzamiento de nuestro programa de acondicionamiento deportivo espartano después de la escuela no se lanzará hasta después del 11 de enero como muy pronto. Como recordatorio, actualmente no hay prácticas atléticas patrocinadas por la escuela o actividades extracurriculares en persona aprobadas por Sylmar Charter High School. La participación en actividades no patrocinadas por la escuela no influye en la buena reputación del estudiante con ningún equipo atlético o grupo escolar Espartano. Se recomienda que todas las familias sigan la orden actual “Más seguro en el hogar” y continúen practicando los protocolos adecuados de detección, saneamiento y distanciamiento social según lo recomendado por las agencias de salud pública estatales y locales. Los estudiantes, el personal o los miembros de la familia que se enteren de cualquier reunión de equipo o de estudiantes realizada por un representante de la escuela deben notificar a la administración de la escuela inmediatamente.

Mantente a salvo y #EspartanoFuerte.

Gracias.

Rodney Wright

 

 

 

CIF State Releases Statement and Update on Season 1 Sports

Please see attached press release below-

Season 1 (Boys and Girls Water Polo, Cross Country, Football, Girls Volleyball) will not begin on time as previously hoped for due to the ongoing pandemic situation.

We are awaiting updated youth sports guidelines from the State Health Department. Until that information is provided, all sports will be on hold. Conditioning may continue per LA County Health Department.

Boys Volleyball has been moved to Season 2 beginning in March and Competitive Cheer will be held during Season 1 and 2 since those two sports lost their seasons last Spring.

CIF State regional and state championship tournaments for Season 1 have been canceled to allow Sections more time and flexibility with their Season 1 schedules.

The next update on Season 1 sports will be shared in mid-January.

Athletic Updates as of 8/27/20

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all athletic activities have been postponed until further notice. It is highly recommended that you complete your physical exam and emergency card paperwork in advance, as these will be required in order to try out. For the latest update from the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF), please go to Twitter@CIFLAS and/or Facebook@CIFLAS.

A tentative athletic calendar has been shared by CIF-LA (see below). All schedules are subject to change based on LAUSD return to school campuses and LA County Department of Health guidelines.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. 

 

A few frequently asked questions…

 

  • Can students try-out for a team during remote learning?
  • No, there are no try-outs being hosted while students are not attending “live” instruction.  Coaches may not meet with student athletes on campus or at other off-site locations as part of Sylmar Charter High School athletics. Public announcements will be made on the school’s website and through Schoology should there be any team try-out.

 

  • What are the requirements for a student to try-out for a team?
  • Completed physical
  • Must use the LAUSD Physical Form
  • Must have doctor’s signature and stamp
  • Forms reviewed by Ms. Bagamaspad, School Nurse and final clearance from Ms. Snee, Athletic Director.
  • Completed Emergency Card
  • Eligible GPA of 2.0 or better
  • All players will need to maintain the same required 2.0 GPA for participation based on the 10 and 20 week report cards.

 

  • Will there be new forms added to the student athlete required paperwork regarding Covid 19?
  • There will be an additional Covid 19 form required for athletic participation. It is being developed now and will be posted on the Athletic tab on the school’s website.  All athletic forms are available on website and through athleticclearance.com.
  • We strongly encourage students to get their physicals done now and submit all the required paperwork by November 2020 to the Main Office.

 

  • With the elimination of California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Rule 600, can a high school coach restrict a student athlete from participating on a club team?
  • A coach cannot mandate a student athlete to participate or not participate in a club sport.  Coaches are prohibited from collecting payment for a club team during season of sport.

 

  • Will sideline cheer, band, and other auxiliary groups be allowed to attend athletic events?
  • This has not been determined.  The decision will be based on safety protocols and  facility capacities as determined by LAUSD, CIF-LA, and County Department of Health.
