Fall 2020 Athletics Update
As has been publicized recently, the Maine Principals’ Association has announced that the start date for fall athletic activities has been moved from Monday, August 17, 2020 to Tuesday, September 8, 2020. The date of the first countable contests will be Friday, September 18, 2020. Fall athletic schedules for SMAA schools will be released following any revisions necessitated by the change in start date.
Thornton Academy and other area high schools in York County are currently planning to begin summer conditioning programs for fall activities on Monday, August 24. More information related to the nature and scope of this program will be announced in the coming weeks. Please keep in mind that these dates are subject to change based upon guidance from the Maine Department of Education, the Maine Principals’ Association, and the Southwestern Maine Activities Association.
At all times, addressing the health and safety needs of our students, staff, and other athletic stakeholders remains our primary objective. We appreciate your understanding and support as we navigate these challenging waters.
