Kyrene Parents and Guardians,
Where Champions are Made!
IMPORTANT UPDATE INFORMATION as of 11/20/2020
Athletics Update 11/20/2020:
As per our Safe Return to Athletics Plan, practices can continue through Tuesday November 24. The cross country meet for Tuesday November 24 will be CANCELLED.
We will not have practice once we transition into contingency on November 30. Coaches may provide individual workouts for athletes to practice skills and conditioning at home until practices may resume. We will plan to resume activities when we return to in-person learning at school in alignment with the metrics and our Safe Return to Athletics Plan.
Although we always review AIA Guidelines, our timelines and plan may not fully coincide with theirs. When it is safe to play games and have competitions within Kyrene, we will provide a schedule for each sport.
Thank you for your flexibility and support for our Athletics program.
We will continue to monitor the metrics each week and offer our athletics programs in accordance with our Safe Return to Athletics plan. Thank you for your patience while we reviewed the data, as the safety of staff and student athletes is our highest priority.
Please visit kyrene.org/athletics for continued updates.
Students who are participating in both the in-person and flex learning models will be able to participate in athletics programming at their school site during the 2020-2021 school year.
We are proud to announce that students who are enrolled with our new school, Kyrene Digital Academy, will be allowed to participate in our Kyrene Athletic Program. K.D.A. students in grades 6-8 who live in Kyrene School District boundaries will be allowed to participate in the Kyrene Athletic Program at the school within the boundaries they reside.
