TESTING

One last note. The CDC has added some recommendations on quarantine to potentially be shortened to 10 days. The State of Vermont has not changed its protocol. It remains 14 days (with the 7 day option to test if without symptoms). The CDC has also come back out to say that the 14 day quarantine is preferred.

Winter Sports Practices to Begin!

Winter sports practices will begin in the next few days! The snowboarding team will practice Sunday, 1/17- -please contact Coach Salway (ssalway@tvhs.k12.vt.us) if you plan to attend.


The first day of high school basketball practice will be Monday, January 18. Boys in grades

9-12 should report to practice from 4:00-6:00. All girls in grades 9-12 should report from

6:15-7:45. Middle school boys and girls (grades 7 & 8) should report to practice on

Tuesday, January 19 from 3:00-4:30. Players are expected to arrive, play & leave

immediately following their scheduled time in the gym. Parents must remain in the parking

lot at the back gym door as no one other than players and coaches are allowed in the

building. We are providing a 15 minute buffer between sessions to mitigate mixing.

PLEASE arrange pickup at the scheduled time. Any homeschoolers or remote learners

being dropped off by a parent need to remain until your child has been cleared by the coach

to participate. In person learners who are not cleared will be isolated until a ride can be

secured. Players should come prepared with appropriate gear to play in (sneakers, shorts

& t-shirt). Locker rooms are off limits so please come ready to play. Snowboard training is

currently underway at the high school level.
