Kirkland Athletic COVID Safety

This document comes from the LWSD COVID 19 Safety Plan which states: To comply with Washington State Department of Health, Lake Washington School District has developed a detailed plan for athletics and activities. Link to COVID 19 safety plan, see page 25 for Athletics.
 
All guidelines listed below pertain to our after-school athletics program only.  Physical education (PE classes) take during the school day will follow the school day COVID safety procedures.

 
After-school athletics – Indoors 

  • All coaches and other support personnel involved with sporting activities must wear face coverings indoors regardless of vaccination status.  
  • Masks are not required for athletes while actively practicing or competing regardless of vaccination status.  We do encourage athletes to wear a face covering if they so choose, while actively participation or competing.  
    • In order for unvaccinated students to participate in basketball or wrestling, without a mask, they will need to complete two COVID tests per week at school.  Testing will be provided by school staff.  
  • Student athletes are required to wear a face covering when not actively participating (ie. Sitting on the team bench, team huddle, etc.)
  • Masking is required universally for all spectators attending indoor K-12 sporting activities, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Physical distancing should be practiced to the degree possible when not playing.

After-school athletics – Outdoors 

  • Masks are not required for outdoor sports of any contact level.  We do encourage athletes to wear a face covering if they so choose, when outside.  
  • Physical distancing should be practiced to the degree possible when not playing.

Transportation

  • Universal masking is required on buses regardless of vaccination status.
  • When traveling on buses for athletic competitions, students will be seated in cohorts.
