TOPEKA, Kan. — By action of the KSHSAA Executive Board Tuesday, all fall activities will begin as scheduled for the 2020-21 school year. This includes practice and competition.

Local school districts retain the right to modify the start dates for practice or competition based on their local and county health recommendations.

The KSHSAA considerations for fall activities released on July 22 are still in effect. Those considerations are posted here: www.kshsaa.org/public/pdf/KSHSAAReturntoAct-General.pdf ; www.kshsaa.org/public/pdf/ActSpecificConsiderations.pdf

Why is everyone so upset that school is starting and won’t have a delay but they are not crying over sports starting on the 17th?? How can we have sports but we can’t have school? I think they should be on the same page. Schools will have strict guidelines of hand washing and distancing but do you really think that will be followed at practices?? Where is the outcry over sports starting??


Insanity. I guess they'll learn once kids start dropping like flies. People are so damned impatient and keep putting us all back to square one.
