MPHS temporarily suspends summer conditioning sessions
News Release June 24, 2020
Monroe County Schools and the Mary Persons High School Athletics Department have today temporarily suspended summer conditioning sessions for the football program until early July.
School officials received notification that an athlete participating in small group conditioning sessions under the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) guidelines has tested positive for covid-19.
Under the guidance of the Department of Public Health, the athlete and others taking part in the same group are being advised to self-quarantine for 10-14 days. The conditioning program is tentatively scheduled to resume following the school system’s planned closure for the week of July 4th.
“We are closely following the guidance of our local and regional public health officials,” said Dr. Mike Hickman, Superintendent of Schools. “Our first and primary goal is to maintain the well-being of our students and our staff, along with their families.”
