Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools Addresses Delay of High School Athletics

August 12, 2020 - WS/FCS supports the decision by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) to shift fall sports schedules later into the academic year.  As always, we will follow all NCHSAA guidelines and work in conjunction with the NCHSAA to do what’s best for the safety of our student-athletes. 

The WS/FCS Athletics Committee, a part of our “Back to School” committees, will meet in the coming days to discuss this scheduling change and the impact on our athletes.  Soon, the committee, which is made up of high school coaches, principals, and district leaders, will make recommendations as to how the district can best move forward in light of the NCHSAA decision. 

The district also plans to evaluate other student activities such as middle school athletics, marching band and JROTC.  We appreciate the patience of our students and parents as we work to keep all students and staff safe during this unprecedented time.
