In an effort to maintain proper social distancing for spectators during athletic events, the athletic department has set forth the following guidelines for the fall 2021 athletic season:
Members of the media are welcome to varsity athletic contests for all Avon High School Spring sporting events. A member of the media is defined as an employee of a digital or print media company, who is assigned to cover local high school athletics, or an approved member of the Avon Booster Club who serves as the team photographer. Members of the media must adhere to the following guidelines:
All members of the media should submit a request to cover an AHS athletic contest, by emailing Tim Filon, Director of Athletics at email@example.com, at least twelve hours prior to the start of the athletic contest. A credential will be issued, in the form of an approval email from Tim Filon.
All members of the media must wear a company issued Identification badge, and should check in with game staff upon arrival. Members of the media should be prepared to show the credential email from Tim Filon upon request.
All members of the media are required to wear a face mask or face covering indoors, and will be required to stay in the designated media area, as determined by the Director of Athletics.
All members of the media, who are using photo or video equipment to capture images or video, must remain on the opposite sideline from team benches, and remain at least 6 feet from the field/court boundary line at any of our facilities.
Members of the media may conduct post game interviews with coaches and players in accordance with established procedures, a mask must be worn by the member of the media as well as the coach/student-athlete, and at least 6 feet of social distancing should be in place between interviewer and interviewee.
Any member of the media who fails to follow these procedures, as well as other published procedures of Avon Public Schools shall have their credentials revoked, and a supervisor will be notified.
Opposing School Spectators
Parents/guardians and students from the opposing schools will be permitted to attend athletic contests this fall. All spectators are required to wear a mask indoors and maintain proper social distancing guidelines while in the gym. Only team members, coaches, officials and school administration will be permitted on the turf or track areas during games. This information will be shared with all opposing school athletic departments for dissemination.
AHS students will be allowed to attend all home sporting events in the fall. Students must wear a mask indoors and follow proper social distancing guidelines at all times. If students do not adhere to these guidelines, they will be asked to leave the event by AHS event staff /security and not be allowed back for the remainder of the fall season.

All spectators should sit in the marked bleacher areas only or stand along the fence line. Once the game has ended, all spectators must leave the facility immediately.
All children in Grades 8 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to all AHS athletic events.
Only coaches, officials, athletes and event staff approved by the athletic director can be on the track or inside the black fence area of the stadium. Cutting across the track and turf at halftime is not allowed.
Failure to adhere to any spectator guidelines will result in removal from the event by AHS staff or security.

Quarantine, Contacts and Isolation
Fully vaccinated students/staff who are a close contact with a known COVID-19 case do not have to quarantine from sports or other activities, provided they remain asymptomatic after close contact with a known COVID-19 case (Interim Recommendations for COVID-19 Prevention in Connecticut’s PreK-12 Schools, July 2021), and wear a mask until receiving a negative COVID-19 test (taken between days 3 and 5 from the date of contact) or 14 days without a test.(If you play an outdoor sport, you will have to wear a mask during competition until receiving a negative test result as stated above)
Unvaccinated asymptomatic students who are a close contact of a known COVID-19 case will be quarantined for 10 days (with a negative test between days 7 and 10) or 14 days without a test. Vaccinated and unvaccinated students who experience COVID-19 symptoms after close contact with a known COVID-19 case will be quarantined for 10 days (with a negative test between days 7 and 10) or 14 days without a test.
Masks are not required outdoors at this time.
Masks must be worn inside the building at all times and when traveling on bus rides. Water breaks must be done with social distancing guidelines in mind regardless of vaccination status.
All coaches will take attendance via a google sheet daily. This will enable the school administration to facilitate contact tracing much more efficiently if needed.
*If a student is not feeling well, they should inform their coach and not attend practice.
All team schedules will be sent out from each head coach at the beginning of the season. Please visit www.casciac.org to see full team schedules as well. You may also follow us on Twitter at @AHS_Falcons for daily event schedules or updates.
If a student has a valid drivers license, they may drive to home games/practices at off site venues in the town of Avon only(Fisher meadows, Blue Fox Run, etc…) All students must ride a bus to and from an away game unless they are transported directly by their parent or guardian. Please make sure that a request to transport form the athletic website is filled out and submitted in advance to the head coach and athletics office. If a student drives to a sports site in town, they cannot have any passengers with them unless it’s a sibling. No friends, neighbors, etc....
Players should bring their own water bottles and can refill them in the building. No team water jugs can be used until further notice.
Student athletes should bring their own hand sanitizer daily.
Coaches will have spray bottles of Clear Gear to sanitize all equipment before and after practice.
Locker Room Usage
(Masks are required)NO team room usage will be allowed this season. Student athletes can use the locker rooms to change and use the bathroom. They must take all belongings with them to practice and or games. Nothing can be left in the locker room or school once they head out to practice and or games. The only reason anyone should be in the building once a practice or a game has begun is to use the bathrooms near athletics or to see the trainer.
If a team is practicing after 3:30pm, then the student athletes have to go home when school ends at 2:10pm and come back dressed for practice and or games. Students are not allowed to stay on school grounds unsupervised at any time.
Equipment storage for during the school day
Tables will be placed in the hallway outside of the new gym so students can leave their belongings during the day. This is the same process we had in place last year. All students who drive to school should keep their belongings in their car until the end of the day.
Athletic Training Guidelines
Justin LeDuc will be posting all training room guidelines on the athletic website. If you have any questions, please email Justin at Justin.LeDuc@hhchealth.org
All spectator guidelines for the fall season will be sent out to the community prior to the start of the first week of competition. We are still waiting for specific guidance from the local health department before making any final decisions.
