WINTER SEASON PUT ON PAUSE
Dear Storm Families,
I know that there are many questions regarding athletics and the adaptive pause that was announced by Superintendent
Sanders Monday night as well as the statement from the IHSA on Tuesday and Thursday. For those of you that are unaware School District U46 will be taking an adaptive pause beginning on November 23rd, and as of now going through December 4th. This decision was made in conjunction with the Kane County Regional Office of Education along with the Kane County Health Department. This adaptive pause means that all in-person instruction and activities must be put on hold. This does apply to athletics as well, please understand that this does not mean your season is canceled. The IHSA has also currently put the winter season on hold. The IHSA will meet again on December 2nd to hopefully determine when the winter season can start up again. As of Friday, November 20th all practices must be put on hold.
What this means for the South Elgin Athletic Department is that we will be on hold, for in-person activities, during this
time as well. We will conclude the week with our scheduled picture day on Saturday, November 21st. When the pause begins on Monday, November 23rd we will not be able to hold any in-person practices or competitions. Our coaches will still work to provide virtual opportunities to our student-athletes during this time.
Please understand that we will need to be prepared to adjust during this pause as we get closer to the end of the
scheduled pause. Through all of this, I appreciate all of our coaches ’ dedication and flexibility to serve the needs of our
student-athletes. I also appreciate all of our family’s flexibility and responsiveness during these times. Through all of this,
the South Elgin Athletic Department is dedicated to providing opportunities and the best experiences possible for our
student-athletes. While we understand that this situation is not ideal we are still dedicated to supporting all of our student-athletes. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me.
Thank you again for supporting South Elgin Athletics. We look forward to updating you soon.
