Like everything else, high school sports will be 'paused'

Barrington High School teams hope to begin in January

Posted

Barrington school officials notified parents recently that organized school sports will not be allowed until January.

According to a district-wide email from the administration, the RI Deputy Commissioner of Education informed school officials that organized sports were being put on hold — no games or practices. That is similar to the two-week "pause" being instituted statewide by the governor. That pause starts Nov. 30.

"Ultimately, we want to make sure that we use this time to decrease the number of cases here in Rhode Island so that we may return in January with as many students as we can and as safely as possible," stated the email.

School officials said they hope to have an update about the winter sports season available to students and their parents at the end of the two-week pause.
