Department Overview

  • Norfolk Public Schools (NPS) is proud of the organized program of athletics offered for boys and girls in middle and high schools.

RETURN TO SPORTS UPDATE TO CONTINUE ATHLETICS: GUIDELINES TO BEGIN ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2020

  • The following health metrics will be reviewed daily by NPS’ Senior Coordinator of Athletics:

    1. Total number of new cases per 100,000 persons in the last 14 days
    2. Percentage of RT-PCR tests that are positive during the last 14 days

    If NPS remains in the current status of RED/ORANGE: Winter athletics can proceed (RT-PCR less than 10%)

    If NPS increases to a status of RED/RED: Winter athletics must pause IMMEDIATELY (A return to athletics can happen when health metrics have less than 10% in RT-PCR for 7 consecutive days and the status is RED/ORANGE or a lighter color of the health metric chart is achieved.)

    As the division’s daily figures are released, the Senior Coordinator of Athletics will notify all principals and AD’s of the status of athletics for the day.
