BALTIMORE — Baltimore City Public Schools has postponed the start of all in-person athletics activities until further notice.

This includes all in-person conditioning, practice, and competition.

The decision was made in close consultation with Baltimore City's Health Department and an examination of the potential risks associated with in-person athletics.

City Schools says they will continue to work with school-based athletic departments and community partners to support on-going virtual engagement with student-athletes and coaches by promoting a sense of community, positive character, sportsmanship, leadership, citizenship, and academic excellence.

Families and students should reach out to their schools for more information on support tools available through the athletic department.
