Return to Play Guidelines and Recommendations

The Plato Athletic Department, working in conjunction with CDC guidelines and local health departments will implement the following plan to get our student-athletes back into the gym.  Because of the seriousness of COVID-19, the following guidelines will be followed when practices resume June 15.  

General Guidelines

Because of the seriousness of COVID-19, parents and students must work with staff to follow all guidelines.  This is a requirement to participate in athletics. 

  • Participants must sign the Parent Permission and Waiver of Liability for Student Participation in Athletics.
  • The Plato R-V Athletic Department understands that participation can not and will not be mandatory for anyone.
  • All student-athletes will stay six feet away from other participants and be in groups of less than ten.  
  • Participants cannot treat spreading the virus as a joke – parents will be notified and asked to be a part of enforcing this requirement.
  • Only participants will be allowed in the facilities, parents/guardians will need to remain in their car.  
  • Participants must closely monitor for symptoms of  COVID-19 and will not attend if exhibiting symptoms including but not limited to: fever, dry cough, fatigue, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pains.   Any instance of testing or a positive COVID-19 diagnosis of a participant or individuals a participant has come in contact with must be immediately reported to the athletic department. 
  • Participants must bring their own water bottle.  Water fountains will not be used.
  • Face Masks are recommended but not mandatory.
  • Information and updates regarding schedules and changes to procedures will be sent to students through Remind. 
  • A scheduled time will be offered for each grade level.  The Athletic Director can adjust training assignments by request to support job schedules or training with family members.  
  • All HS athletes will start with weight room/cardio work in the old gym. JH athletes will meet in the New Gym – enter through the side door closest to the Tennis Court.
