*The following is taken from Governor Reynold's Proclamation dated August
27th: Consistent with the recommendations of the Iowa Department of Public
Health and the Iowa Board of Medicine and to assist in reducing the spread of
Covid-19, I strongly encourage all Iowans two or older to wear a mask or other
face covering when in public settings, especially in circumstances when it is not
possible to remain six feet away from others outside their household, unless it is
unsafe to do so because of health or disability.While we have not mandated
masks, we asked that you consider complying with this recommendation not only
at school but in all public settings.

The Western Valley Conference will be requiring the wearing of a face covering
by all spectators in attendance at our facilities at all levels. Collectively, we want
our students to have the opportunity to play and compete for an entire season in
a safe and healthy environment.
