The IAAM is aware of current restrictions related to athletics in certain member school jurisdictions, however, our goal remains to continue to promote and create paths for athletic participation.
Therefore, the IAAM will move forward with winter sports. MDSA will offer basketball and swimming, as planned, officially beginning February 1, 2021, and ending March 13, 2021. Workouts for these programs may start as early as next week. Coaches will notify returning athletes and additional announcements will be made at school and on Canvas. If your student is not a returning athlete and may be interested in playing either sport, please contact the following: Basketball Coach Trish Armstrong at email@example.com; Swimming Coach Darlene Rehmert at MDSswimcoach@gmail.com.
Additionally, IAAM Schools will schedule their contests independently, providing the autonomy that schools will need and want. When contests are scheduled, any and all health and safety protocols will be worked out between schools. All standard athletic forms for participants are still required. If you have any questions regarding forms please reach out to Nate Guest, Assistant Athletic Director firstname.lastname@example.org.
As of March 12, Governor Hogan has lifted the travel restrictions:
“QUARANTINE REQUIREMENTS LIFTED; TRAVEL ADVISORY REMAINS IN PLACE. Quarantine requirements and other restrictions on out-of-state travel will be lifted. A Maryland Department of Health (MDH) travel advisory will remain in place, and Marylanders continue to be encouraged to get tested for COVID-19 upon their return from out-of-state travel.
Mount de Sales Academy encourages prudence and caution if traveling. We also request that families refrain from travel outside of the United States. If traveling out of state (besides WV, VA, DC, DE, and PA), Mount de Sales Academy recommends that families receive a PCR test before a student returns to school.
