The back to school plan in the Nipissing region will be one without fall sports.
That's according to a recent memo sent out by Tim Lowe, the president of Nipissing District Athletics which oversees high school sports in the region.
"As we close out the summer holidays and anxiously await the opening of schools, many in the high school sporting community have been wondering if and when high school sports will return," stated Lowe in the memo.
"The members of the N.D.A. Executive agree that a safe return to classroom learning is a priority. As such, all four school boards have released their return to school plan. Within that plan, it clearly states that there will be no co-curricular activities for the time being."
Lowe says the NDA fully supports that decision.
"We look forward to engaging in meaningful conversation with the stakeholders as to when we can offer the quality sports programing that all our high schools offer," he said.
Therefore, the N.D.A. will not be operating any Fall leagues or competitions until the local school boards allow those to happen."
The fall sports that will not be played this semester are cross country running, football, girls basketball, boys volleyball, along with golf.
