Reopening of High School Athletics

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) will reopen high school athletics beginning Monday, August 17, 2020 under specific guidelines recently issued by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) for youth sports and school-based athletics. At this time, state guidelines permit only OUTDOOR activities and require all athletes to maintain social distancing of at least six feet and a stable cohort. For sports that cannot be conducted with sufficient distancing or cohorting, only conditioning and training is permitted. Any activity that promotes congregating is not permitted at this time (i.e. competitions, events, assemblies). Newport Mesa USD has developed a plan in accordance with the state guidelines along with an approval process that must be followed in order for each athletic team to begin activity. Athletic directors and coaches have been notified of the plan and approval process. Once we have reopened athletics for our school-based programs we will begin to consider outside user (non-district) groups where possible and while maintaining safety on our campuses and facilities. Please view the for more information.
