District 219 Athletes and Parents, 

Many of you have probably become aware that the state of Illinois is moving back to Tier 3 beginning Friday, November 20th. Like all of you, we are hopeful this is a temporary setback, and that we are back in person soon. Of course, we will keep you posted on any new developments, and we wish nothing but the best for you and your family as we all do our best to navigate these difficult situations. We will continue with in-person practice today, Wednesday, November 18th. We will pivot to virtual practices for each of our teams starting Thursday, November 19th.  Please see the statement below from the director of the IHSA:


From IHSA Executive Director Craig Anderson:

“The Illinois High School Association (IHSA) recognizes that today’s announcement by Governor Pritzker will temporarily pause the IHSA’s winter sports season. We remain optimistic that these new mitigations, coupled with the emergence of a vaccine, will aid in creating participation opportunities in the New Year for IHSA student-athletes in winter, spring, and summer sports. The IHSA Board of Directors will meet as scheduled on November 19, 2020, to continue plotting out potential paths for IHSA sport and activity participation through the remainder of the school year. Although representatives from the Governor’s office and the Illinois Department of Public Health will be unable to attend the meeting, today’s updated guidance from Governor Pritzker will aid the Board’s decision-making. We have asked Deputy Governor Ruiz and Dr. Ezike to engage with us in the near future, so that we can collaborate on developing a plan to safely conduct IHSA sports and activities as soon as possible. IHSA schools have been exemplary in adhering to state regulations throughout this pandemic and we hope that non-school programs will hold themselves to the same standard as we all put the long-term health and safety of our fellow citizens ahead of short-term athletic competition.”


Thank you for your continued patience and understanding,


Brett Bildstein, Niles North Athletic Director        Dr. Dana Krilich, Niles West Athletic Director    

Dr. Jim Edwards, Niles North Principal          Dr. Karen Ritter, Niles West Principal
