UMTSD Proposed Reopening of the Athletic and Marching Unit Program
The Upper Moreland Township School DIstrict's Board of Directors approved a plan to allow our student-athletes and marching band unit students to return to play voluntarily during practices and workout sessions beginning on July 1, 2020. Each parent or guardian of a student participating in sports or the marching unit during the 2020-21 school year must read the plan entitled Return to Play the Athletics Program or Return to Play the Marching Unit Program. The plan details particular expectations for our coaches, our students, and our parents as we return to play during the COVID 19 pandemic. Each parent or guardian must also send an email to the coach or the marching unit instructor informing him/her that you have read the plan and agree to allow your child to participate in sports or the marching unit practices and workouts for the upcoming school year.
If you have any questions or concerns after you read the six-page document and before you send the coach or instructor an email, please don't hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
Important Change in Definition of “Compulsory School Age” Effective September 26, 2019, all children from the age of six (6) through the age of eighteen (18) must comply with compulsory school attendance requirements. To meet these requirements, parents must ensure that their child between the ages of 6 and 18 is attending or participating in one of the following: a public elementary, middle, or high school; a public charter or cyber-charter school; a private licensed academic or private religious school; home tutoring by a certified teacher; or an approved program of home schooling. Children may be excused from compulsory attendance for documented medical or other compelling reasons as outlined in District attendance policy and procedures.
