Gibraltar takes a look at winter sports season

The Gibraltar Area School Board will look at what can be done to kids back in action this winter sports season.


The school canceled its fall sports season due to COVID-19 before the seasons ever got underway statewide. Based on their threshold level plan in place to decide on whether or not in-person classes can take place, it is likely that team activities would only have been allowed to take place virtually. Superintendent Tina Van Meer says the Packerland Conference is moving ahead with its winter sports season and the school board has to look at how those standards and its own threshold level plan mesh.

The Gibraltar Area School Board will meet on Monday beginning at 7 p.m.
