Pickens County Schools will Allow Extracurricular Activities

Community, Dragon's Corner

Dear Dragon Families,
After much consideration, it has been determined that all Pickens County School District
extracurricular activities will be allowed to continue as planned. This decision was made after
careful consideration was given to the safety, health and well-being of all parties involved. After
discussions with administrators, coaches, central office personnel and local healthcare officials, we
have developed a plan that we believe will allow for hosting of all school-sponsored events to be
done in a safe manner.
In order to host these events on our campus, it will be necessary to implement the following
mitigation strategies:

  • Spectators must wear a mask or face shield at all times while inside a Pickens
    County School District facility.
  • Social distancing must be practiced when practical.
  •  Capacity at all events on Pickens County campuses will be limited to 25%.
  •  All participants, coaches and sponsors will be screened prior to participating
    in any event or practice.
    *Failure to comply with these requirements may result in removal from the
    event or activity.

We ask for your complete cooperation as we continually seek strategies that will allow for
our students to participate in these extracurricular activities and events. These students have
worked extremely hard to prepare for these events. They need our support and cooperation in
order for them to safely participate.
Thank you in advance for doing your part to support our students across all extracurricular
and co-curricular activities within the district. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to
contact me, Mr. Chris Wallace, or Dr. Chad Flatt at [email protected],
[email protected], or [email protected]

Respectfully,
Dr. Rick Townsend
Superintendent
