Eagles News · Update on HRVHS Spring Sports

Currently all school district property is closed for use.
We are scheduled at this time to return to Spring Sport practices on April 1st.
This email was shared with all Head Coaches of Spring Sports at HRVHS.  Please read:
We are asking all of our spring sport head coaches to forward this message to our student-athletes and spring sports parents.  I have been a part of an email thread consisting of athletic directors from across the state of Oregon trying to consider our options with spring sports as we continue to be challenged with the COVID-19 crisis.  While we are hopeful that we will be able to return to spring sports soon, it is apparent that if we don’t adhere to the practice of Social Distancing, we may be limited in our options.
The message I am hearing from other AD’s is that the spring sports season is in serious jeopardy.  The only way we may get to play this year is for people to observe social distancing to limit the spread of COVID-19.  Even if we are 100% compliant, it still may not be enough, but we need to focus on what we can control.
The information about best practices with Social Distancing is that we need to limit all non-essential contact.  I would include any group workout or informal practices in the category of non-essential.  Please help us by not participating in any practices or group workouts of any kind until the OSAA’s moratorium is lifted April 1st, whether or not a coach is involved or on school district property.
Just a reminder:
  • All school facilities are closed.
  • Please practice social distancing.  This means no non-essential contact outside of the household.
We’ll never know if we are overreacting, but we will know if we have under-reacted.
Educate yourself. Stay calm. Keep positive.

When we travel the highways and byways of life, in pursuit of excellence, service to others, and self-mastery, there will inevitably be moments of despair, negativity, disappointment, and adversity. Our humanity is dealing with unprecedented times. But the unrest presents an opportune moment for all of us to step forward as courageous beings. Self-leadership and self-discipline are more critical in our lives than ever. We must lead from a place of courage and truth, not fear.”
