Athletic and Extracurricular Activity Announcement Regarding CPS Policy of Cancellations

Hello Taft Students and Parents,



Summer contact days for coaches have been CANCELED and eliminated due to the pandemic for coaches and students.  We apologize about any inconvenience as we are being proactive in the health and well being of our students and family.  If you have paid for camps, please check your email as there will be a refund provided by our Illinois 8 to 18 account.


Chicago Public Schools has released new guidelines for group and athletic gatherings and district sanctioned travel through the latest Governor's announcement of schools remaining closed through the rest of the academic year, I am updating this message as a final cancellation for any event we had scheduled.

  • Essential school activities involving students and school staff during the school day will proceed as usual.  This includes lunch periods and our daily class schedule.
  • All athletics and extracurricular activities are suspended until further notice.  This includes practices, meetings and any athletic and sport competitions.



  • Assemblies and field trips are classified as non-essential and will be postponed.
  • All school sanctioned trips beyond Chicago city limits are cancelled through the end of Spring Break.  Additional guidance will be issued for travel post post Spring Break in the upcoming weeks.



If there are any questions, comments or concerns, please feel to reach out.  I apologize about any inconveniences and thank you again for your efforts and commitment.
