Athletics Update – February 26, 2021

Dear M-W student-athletes and families,

I am writing with some athletics updates for students and their families.

Student Schedules during Fall II Sports Season (March 1- April 17)

We have received several inquiries from families asking if their student-athletes may select fully remote instruction during the duration of their sport season in an effort to avoid extended quarantines that could result in their inability to compete. 

After careful consideration, the school district has decided to give student-athletes the  option to select fully remote instruction for the extent of their sports season only. Families do not have to commit to fully remote learning for the entire semester. For example, if you are currently a hybrid student, you may be fully remote for the duration of your sports season and then return to school as a hybrid student at the conclusion of the season, even though it is mid-semester.

Parents/guardians must complete the Student Remote Instruction Form, committing to fully remote instruction for their child during the sports season. 

Livestream Service 

We’re excited to share that we are partnering with LocalLive to launch a livestream service that provides families and community members around the world free remote viewing access to sporting events, concerts, graduation/moving up ceremonies, and other district events. Monroe-Woodbury is the first school in Section IX athletics to partner with LocalLive.

Monroe-Woodbury’s LocalLive service will be fully functional next month. Community members will be able to access a calendar of upcoming events as well as a recorded archive of prior live streams on the M-W LocalLive channel. This channel will be linked on the district website sometime in March. Check out the announcement on the district website for more information. 

In the meantime, here are some upcoming events that will be livestreamed:

  • Boys Swimming & Diving Sections, Saturday 2/27 @ 1:00pm
  • Boys Basketball Purple/ White Game, Saturday 2/27 @ 1:00pm
  • Ice Hockey Purple/White Game, Wednesday 3/3 @ 8:45pm from Bear Mountain

Links to the events will be posted on the website and social media closer to the event dates.
