HSAA CANCELS ACTIVITIES
4/17/2020

It is with sadness and regret that the Idaho High School Activities Association Board of Directors announces that all spring sport and activity seasons and all state tournaments are cancelled.  This decision was based on guidelines established by Governor Little, the Idaho State Board of Education, as well as feedback from schools and districts throughout the state. 

365体育投注As the COVID-19 situation continued to evolve, it became apparent that these state events could not be held safely and still follow the parameters set by the governor, SBOE and the IHSAA.  Our Board of Directors and office staff recognize the importance of participation in education - based activities.  We empathize with the students, schools and communities that this decision impacts.  The IHSAA also understands the disappointment that this will have on our student participants, especially the seniors who were looking forward to a final culminating event. 

365体育投注Current Idaho High School Activities Association policies, based on SBOE soft closure and current IHSAA rules, prohibit the use of school facilities and coaches from organizing or directing team workouts and practices remain in effect until May 18th.  The IHSAA Board of Directors will continue to have conversations regarding the fall no contact period and eligibility concerns that have been raised by member schools over the past few weeks. 

The IHSAA Board’s highest priority will always be ensuring the health and safety of our student participants, schools and patrons.  Situations like these will allow students to use the life lessons learned in education - based activities to cope with the adversity as well as they possibly can. We look forward to getting together and playing when the time is right and it can be done safely.

Dear Parent/Guardian:

We understand that the Novel Coronavirus, now known as COVID-19, is causing anxiety in our community, country and the world. Panhandle Health District (PHD) in partnership with Boundary County School District is working to provide you with the most up to date information on this rapidly evolving situation. Following is a brief overview of the current situation. For more information and FAQ’s, we recommend you visit.

W HAT IS KNOWN

  • The virus causing COVID-19 is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified and causes a respiratory illness ranging from a mild cold-like illness to severe pneumonia.
  • Most (80%) of people diagnosed with COVID-19 in China had mild disease, including most children.
  • Similar to influenza, the people who are most likely to have severe disease and complications from COVID-19 are older individuals (>60 years old) and those with other medical conditions like heart and lung disease or diabetes.
  • There is no vaccine or treatment currently available for COVID-19 but the National Institutes of Health is evaluating treatments and developing a vaccine already.
  • Currently, there is NO confirmed community spread of COVID-19 in the Panhandle, meaning the virus is not being spread from person-to-person. However, experts predict there will eventually be community spread. PHD is preparing for when/if this happens.

H OW THE VIRUS SPREADS

  • COVID-19 is believed to spread primarily the same way the common cold or flu spreads—through respiratory droplets that are produced when someone coughs or sneezes.
  • People who are most at risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 are those who have been in close contact (within about 6 feet) with someone who has the disease.
  • People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest).
  • Some spread of the virus might be possible before a person has symptoms; there have been reports of this with COVID-19, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

W HAT YOU CAN DO NOW

  • Keep children home when they are sick.
    • Students (and parents/guardians) who are ill, especially with acute respiratory symptoms (not allergies or chronic conditions), should stay home.
  • Teach your children to always cover their cough and sneezes with a tissue or elbow.
  • Remind them to wash their hands with soap and water (or use hand sanitizer) after they touch their face, use the restroom and before they eat.
  • Tell children to avoid touching their mouth and nose since that is how germs get into the body.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects (everyday household disinfectants are fine)
