Lakeland Conference fall sports guidelines released

 

The Schools of the Lakeland Conference have been working hard to find the best course of action for fall sports. The primary focus of this discussion was the safety of our student athletes, their families, their coaches, and their fans. The Schools took into account the recent plans shared by the WIAA as well as insights and ideas communicated by all groups of the Conference: Superintendents, Principals, Athletic Directors, and Coaches. After much discussion, the Lakeland Conference approved the adoption of the WIAA plans for fall sports with some specific additions.
