THE PIL ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT IS WORKING REMOTELY MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY AND CLOSED ON FRIDAYS. OUR OFFICE IS PHYSICALLY CLOSED AT THIS TIME.
To Our Families,
As you know, Gov. Kate Brown has canceled all in-person classes in the state for the rest of the 2019-20 school year because of the coronavirus crisis. Following that announcement, the Oregon School Activities Association, which governs high school sports in the state, has canceled all spring sports and championships.
Here in Portland Public Schools, those decisions mean that spring sports are canceled for the Portland Interscholastic League at the middle and high school levels. We know this is difficult news for student-athletes who have been hard at work preparing for the spring season, and especially for the seniors who were getting ready to compete in an organized sport for possibly the final time. Please know that you are not alone, that your disappointment is one of the sacrifices that all of us are making during this historic crisis.
For spring athletes, your coaches will be contacting you to check in and help you find ways to safely remain active while maintaining social distancing. Our coaches will follow the guidelines set by the OSAA, which are updated at the organization’s coronavirus webpage.
For families who have paid the participation fee for spring, you can get the money refunded, or if you choose, can leave it with the PIL to help defray the cost of equipment that we have already procured for spring and the stipends for our coaches. If you choose to donate the fee, you do not need to do anything further.
If you would like your fee refunded, please contact your school if your student-athlete is in high school. If your student-athlete is in middle school, please contact the PIL office at 503-916-3223.
We will have more information coming about summer workouts and NCAA guidelines for seniors.
Thank you, and please stay safe.
