Activities Return to Play Update
The Sioux Falls School District is preparing to begin the 2020 fall activities season as scheduled. Our top priority is and will be the health and safety of our student participants, staff, and spectators as we work to provide activities for the 2020-2021 school year. District Administrators are working with the city, state, and national officials to develop safety guidelines and protocols for each activity and will be made available for our stakeholders prior to the respective start date of their seasons. These guidelines and protocols will continually be evaluated to ensure the health and safety of all. If a decision is made to alter, delay, or cancel any of our activities we will issue appropriate communication to all stakeholders and local media. We appreciate your understanding as we diligently work to provide meaningful activity opportunities for our students.
Fall Activities Information
All students and parents at the middle and high school level will receive an email providing information pertaining to our fall activities. This email will include a Virtual Video of their school's respective Activities Principal and/or Athletic Coordinator outlining these topics:
- Introduce opportunities to get involved
- Provide contact information for coaches and directors
- Introduce stakeholders that contribute to our success at our high schools
- Outline important policies and procedures
- Cover required forms to participate in activities
Please note that this meeting has traditionally been hosted in the schools. As a measure to help assist activities and school starting on time in the Sioux Falls School District, we have made the decision to release the information electronically, and there will be no in-person sports night at the schools. Middle School students and parents will receive their information on August 11, 2020, and High School students and parents will receive their information on July 28, 2020.
We ask students, and their parents, that plan on participating in school-sponsored activities during 2020-2021 view the video in its entirety.

A quick overview of some important items you will find includes athletic forms needed for participation, activity calendars, coaches information, live stream links, student/parent resources and so much more.
