ATHLETIC PASSES

SFSD Return to Play for Athletics Update

The Sioux Falls School District Activities Department’s top priority is and will be the health and safety of our student participants, staff, and spectators as we work to provide activities for the 2020-2021 school year. District Administrators have worked with city, state, and national officials to develop the following safety guidelines and protocols for each activity. These guidelines and protocols will continually be evaluated to ensure the health and safety of all. If a decision is made to alter, delay, or cancel any of our activities we will issue appropriate communication to all stakeholders and local media. We appreciate your understanding as we diligently work to provide meaningful activity opportunities for our students in the Sioux Falls School District.
