Ashe County HS Athletics Newsletter Update – May 12



We received an important update today regarding Pre-Participation Exams/Athletic Physicals (PPE) for the 2020-2021 school year.  Below is the updated chart regarding the change. 

To clarify, if a student athlete has a physical on file that is dated on or after 3/1/2019 through 5/1/2020 they have been granted a 1-year extension and will be able to participate in athletics for the 2020-2021 school year.  If their physical was done prior to 3/1/2019, then they will need a valid, up-to-date physical before being allowed to participate.

Be The Light Event 
This Thursday, May 14th from 8-8:20 pm, all of our outdoor athletic facility lights will be turned on to honor our Spring Sports student athletes as well as our seniors.  Below are instructions for this event: 

-All guests will follow a specific route in their cars.  We will have traffic cones and staff on hand to direct you through our campus.
-No parking will be allowed anywhere on campus due to state and local regulations.

We also ask the Ashe County community to light up their porches in honor of the Class of 2020.
