The NJSIAA (New Jersey Interscholastic Athletic Association), which regulates school sports, has released its initial guidelines for a fall season return to high school athletic and marching band activities.

Garfield School District will follow NJSIAA protocols and District Road Back Protocols.

  • Clearly communicate with the coaches, trainer, school athletic nurse, and other stakeholders the guidelines to return to play.
  • All activities will be conducted outdoors with health checks in place and social distancing implemented whenever possible.
  • Garfield has set August 10th as the return date for voluntary pre- season conditioning.
  • Marching band will be permitted to practice given that social distancing can be maintained, and practice is conducted outdoors.
  • Game competitions are scheduled to begin on or about October 1st and extend until on or about Nov. 12th.
  • Garfield will participate given that Covid positive numbers have not spiked and remain consistently low throughout the schools and community.
