Centre Athletic To our Centre Cougar Sports Family, Throughout this pandemic, it has been unpredictable in both our school and community. This summer has looked extremely different from what other summers have previously looked like. One thing has remained constant keeping students and staff safe. The recent delay has caused people to possibly wonder why we delayed practices and weights. This was due to waiting to see what the Governor and State Board of Education would say about restarting school along with activities. In conjunction with cases rising in Marion County the idea was to keep all stakeholders safe. On Wednesday, July 22 KSHSAA came out with various guidelines on how to conduct a sports season with the pandemic. All of these considerations will be difficult to institute throughout the fall sports season. KSHSAA will be surveying superintendents to see when start dates of school will be so they can possibly adjust their schedule accordingly. Our administrative team will also be meeting to help determine what is best for students and staff in regards to protocols for athletics. The status of the fall sports season seems to change each day. As of now, the fall sports season will be occurring but it will look extremely different than in years past. For now, practices and weights will be reopening on Monday July 27 to help prepare student athletes for the upcoming fall season. Football and volleyball camps for middle and high school will also be occuring on August 3-7 in the evenings. All rules and regulations will be followed and enforced. Practices are still scheduled to begin on August 17th. As your students return to athletics please know the risk that exists for the student in contracting the virus whether at a game or practice. Please also make sure to get your physical, consent to treat, and concussion forms in by August 17th if planning to participate. Please email if you have any questions! Thank You for your understanding and cooperation during this difficult time. Mr. Timothy Vinduska, Athletic Director
The Centre Board of Education and Superintendent, Mrs. Beeson recognize the amazing efforts of school leaders, educators, health professionals, transportation directors, food service personnel and many other experts spread across Kansas who gave their time, expertise, and effort to create the Navigating Change Guide for reopening Kansas schools. We look forward to the full mitigation of COVID-19 when we can bring Kansas kids back to Kansas schools.
Due to the Governor's Announcement, workouts and weights will be postponed until further notice including this evening. We will be waiting to hear what the Governor and KSHSAA has to say before proceeding forward with weights and practices. At the press conference Governor Kelly stated that practices will be delayed. Thank you for your understanding.

Centre Athletics To: All Parents and Guardians of upcoming 6th-12th graders Subject: Reminder About Physicals This letter is to remind everyone about the physicals happening at St. Luke Health Clinic this Friday, July 17th from 9:00 AM-11:30 AM. As the pandemic in Kansas has worsened we have been in contact with St. Luke and they have instituted the following guidelines. Masks MUST be worn while in the clinic. Students will need to bring their own masks. If you need a mask please email Mr. Vinduska and we will try to get you a mask before the physical. Please do not come to the clinic if you are feeling sick. It is important that we keep everyone at the clinic safe. Stay home and reschedule the physical at a later date if you are sick. Here are a few reminders about the physical: The cost is $15.00 and checks can be made out to Centre High School. Transportation to and from the clinic will not be provided by the school. You will need to provide your own transportation for your child. Please make sure that all parent signatures are filled out BEFORE coming into the clinic. Once the physicals are done they will be given to the school. You may come at any time between 9:00-11:30 AM however make sure there is space out in the waiting room. The physical form is due on August 17th 2020 which is the first day of practice. If the student does not have the physical in by this time then the student will not be able to practice. If you have any questions or need another physical sheet please contact the school office at 785-983-4304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. THANK YOU!
