For decades, athletics have been a staple of our community, and we know the value they provide to our student athletes. However, the safety and well-being of our families and community remains our primary concern. Thus, it is with great sadness that the Flint Community Schools district has decided to cancel all fall sports due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This was not a decision made lightly. We believe it is our responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of the students in our care and take all necessary precautions to help limit the spread of the pandemic. The district continues to follow the Governor’s guidelines, and we plan to reexamine athletic programs in the winter.
At this time, student athletes will still have the option to condition with plans provided by FCS coaches. However, there are strict rules and guidelines in place for the safety of all parties.
If you have any questions about your child’s athletic participation, please contact either of us directly—Jamie Foster, director of athletics at email@example.com, or Mike Maienbrook, manager of physical and community activity at firstname.lastname@example.org.
