Fall Athletics Season

Fall Athletic Season

To the Pascack Valley Community, Parents and Students,

We are extremely fortunate to be at the beginning of what hopes to be a very rewarding fall athletics season. The COVID-19 experience has taught us many things and it is our hope that we remain focused on what is most important, maintaining the health and safety of our students while having the opportunity to play the games they love with their teammates.

The State athletic association (NJSIAA) and the New Jersey COVID-19 regulations set forth by the CDC, NJDOH, and NJDOE required us to take a hard look at our present operating procedures and make adjustments to comply with the requirements that have been placed upon us. After discussions with our Superintendent, a review of the capacities of our facilities, and a careful assessment of our ability to manage crowds while keeping everyone safe, it has been decided that the following measures will be put in place for all sporting events this fall, regardless of level.

We are extremely excited for the upcoming season and we look forward to once again seeing our Pascack Valley student-athletes compete. Let’s do our part to ensure that these games continue while establishing a safe environment for all.
