Verndale School Board: Coaches are making plans for summer
by Trinity Gruenberg
The Verndale School Board held their regular meeting on June 8.
Coaches to plan summer sports
The summer coaching waiver period is from June 15-August 7. Greg Johnson, activities director and dean of students, said the guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is very restrictive. He asked if the coaches can work on a plan and implement a summer coaching schedule that abides by current guidance from MDH.
They can have outside workouts with up to 25 kids in a “pod” or 10 inside and they cannot be intermixed with different pods.
Other guidance includes wearing face coverings when possible, parents should not attend games and practices, discourage sharing of equipment, avoid using locker rooms and more. . . .
