OSAA Hesitant to Cancel Activities
The Oregon Schools Activities Association that regulates sporting events for the states schools announced yesterday that while sporting activities remain suspended, it has not yet decided to cancel any remaining state championships. A release from the OSAA did say that it will continue to follow the timeline set forth by Governor Kate Brown’s executive order as it pertains to school activities and suspension, noting that there is a real potential that students may not return for the rest of the academic calendar. If that happens the OSAA says it will then cancel spring activities and championships. But until then they are holding out hope. OSAA officials say they have discussed the possibility of moving spring activities to the summer, but are not in favor of doing that citing uncertainty with schools already facing financial challenges brought on by the current virus pandemic.
