Dayton Public Schools Suspend Activities

This week dominos started to fall as preparation for the 2020 fall high school sports season was about to get underway.

As we wrote Tuesday, the Ohio High School Athletic

Association took the first steps with a possible end to football this fall when they announced they were suspending scrimmages.

Wednesday, Middletown suspended all sports and Thursday, the Greater Western Ohio Conference announce they planned only to play games between conference members.

Friday night, Dayton Public Schools announced they were suspending all extracurricular activities due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a release on Facebook, Dayton Public Schools stated they were following the recommendation of The Montgomery County Health Department and would not resume extracurricular activities unit it is safe to return.

The district already planned to begin the 2020 academic year with remote classes starting September 8th.

Was this the correct move?

Should DPS have waited and allowed athletes the chance to prepare for the season in case things change in the coming weeks?
