BUCS WINTER ACTIVITIES “PAUSED” AFTER NOVEMBER 19th, 2020

The Belvidere Bucs will take a temporary break from in-person activities, including the BUC Weight Room, until we receive direction from the IHSA to return. We had postponed basketball already and have decided to continue that postponement through the rest of the week. All other Winter Sports will continue at the discretion of their head coaches this week and “pause” after Thursday, November 19th. We have a short week the following week, with the Thanksgiving Holiday, and hope to have some information and clarity from the IHSA and State of Illinois after.

BUCS WINTER ACTIVITIES “PAUSED” AFTER NOVEMBER 19th, 2020

IHSA Executive Director Craig Anderson:
“The Illinois High School Association (IHSA) recognizes that today’s announcement (November 17, 2020) 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.”
Based on this release last night, the Belvidere Bucs will take a temporary break from in-person activities, including the
BUC Weight Room, until we receive direction from the IHSA to return. We had postponed basketball already and
have decided to continue that postponement through the rest of the week. All other Winter Sports will continue at
the discretion of their head coaches this week and “pause” after Thursday, November 19th. We have a short week the
following week, with the Thanksgiving Holiday, and hope to have some information and clarity from the IHSA and
State of Illinois after. Our coaches have been in contact with students and families since late last night. Keep the faith
as we will be back!
BHS has hosted over twenty-

ve events on-campus this fall and welcomed hundreds of students, some from
competing schools, to our campus. BHS is prepared, and continues to provide a safe and healthy environment for all
our activities that are in-person. Thank you to District 100 for your guidance and support as we continue to
strengthen and grow our students by providing activities that make them happy and they love to perform.
Thank you and Go Bucs!

Assistant Principal and Athletic Director
