February 3, 2021 Signing Day
The Second National Letter of Intent Signing Day for 2020-2021 will be Wednesday, February 3rd in person beginning at 4:00pm. If you are an Oswego East athlete that is committed to a college for athletics and are prepared to do your signing, please email Mr. Millard at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, sport, school email address, and the school you are signing with by the morning of January 29th. You will be assigned a 15 minute window for your signing, which will take place in the Commons. You can bring a group of no more than 25 (including yourself) in that timeframe. All individuals attending must be masked and maintain social distancing. We will have people enter Door 47. Once your time slot is finished, we will ask you and your group to exit Door 2. An email will be sent to you with your time slot that you can share with parents, coaches, and family. Please have the signing student wear a shirt or hat from the college. Your high school coach will introduce you, say a few things in your honor, and then we will allow you a minute or so to say thank you to your group. Please keep all comments professional and respectful. We look forward to giving this opportunity to our student-athletes as we all practice social distancing and do our parts to end this pandemic. Congratulations to all who are signing!

Low Risk Winter Athletics May Begin Jan. 19th
Low-risk winter sports (badminton, cheerleading, dance, boys swim/dive, bowling, and gymnastics (hosted at OH)) may begin practice as early as Tuesday January 19th. Coaches of those teams will be reaching athletes who have shown interest or participated for those sports when they began in November. Those sports that didn't have tryouts in November will have a schedule posted as soon as it is created. Here are a few additional items to be aware of:
- Registration/Physical - All athletes must be registered on 8to18 and have a current physical on file.
- COVID Mitigations - Masks must be worn at all times, social distancing will be observed, and no sharing of items. Bring your own water bottle as drinking fountains are turned off.
- Locker Rooms - Locker rooms are still off-limits under our current mitigations.
- Athletic Shuttles - Athletic shuttles will start running on Wednesday for students who are learning remotely. These shuttles should get athletes to OEHS by about 3:10 for practices. Please see this link https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vhBGy1X5qDPsea9JZ2kKOgVnggNJepKc/view?usp=sharing for routes.
Some out-of-season sports will begin "contact days" in the immediate future as well. Coaches of those sports will be reaching out and posting their plans on social media and/or school announcements. The same COVID mitigations listed above will be in effect for contact days.
