MOUNDRIDGE—Moundridge High School students have been participating in weights and training since June 1, according to Principal Hilarie Hecox.

She said that MHS is fortunate to be a small school, because they can easily divide students into smaller groups than normal summers.

“We’ve increased our sanitation guidelines and cleanliness; equipment is being cleaned after each group has gone through,” Hecox said. “We limit our groups to no more than three and get them in and out.”

Skills training for the various sports is also ongoing, with added precautions.

“We’re doing those as a small group, encouraging social distancing and additional cleanliness, and so far so good on those, as well,” Hecox said.

Hecox said she expects the Kansas State High School Activities Association to give an update on their plans for fall sports by the end of this week or early next week.
