The most recent guidance released by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) and Section I Athletics indicates that students are required to wear masks during practice and competitions (updated March 25, 2021). The requirement for students to wear masks during athletic activities is not a district decision. At this time, no further update from NYSPHSAA or Section I has been provided to districts to reduce or eliminate mask wearing for our athletes. If and when Section I revises their policies and procedures, the Wappingers Central School District community will be notified of the changes.
The mission of the Wappingers Central School District is to empower all of our students with the competencies and confidence to challenge themselves, to pursue their passions, and to realize their potential while growing as responsible members of their community.
