SPENCERPORT, N.Y. (WHEC) — Add the Spencerport Central School District to the districts planning to move forward with its ‘high-risk’ sports come the fall.

The district Saturday released its plans, which include indoor mask requirements for all athletes, coaches, staff, and fans. There will also be no limitations for fan capacity.

Like other districts, Spencerport is awaiting more guidance from the Monroe County Department of Health. Last week the New York State Department of Education (NYSED) recommended that school districts cancel “high-risk” sports in high-transmission areas like Monroe County.

The sports deemed “high-risk” by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were football, basketball, volleyball, wrestling, cheerleading, hockey, and lacrosse. But as we reported, there is still some confusion within Section Five about what the NYSED means when it says “high-risk.”

The fall sports season is set to start Monday.
