Return to Play Plan - Phase 1

Return to Play Plan - Phase 1
Posted on 07/01/2020
Appleton West High School is pleased to announce that we are providing an opportunity for fall student-athletes to return to campus in a limited capacity in preparation for the beginning of the fall 2020 season.   


The Return to Play Phase 1 plan is a collaborative effort which included guidelines from local, state and county agencies. AASD is committed to preparing our student-athletes to safely compete in their chosen sport while ensuring an environment that is as safe as possible in which to do so.   

The guidelines and protocols found in the Return to Play plan have been reviewed by AASD nurses and the city of Appleton health officer. The Return to Play plan was created using information from multiple health-related and medical experts. The plan is in alignment with WIAA suggested guidelines and what the plans of other local school districts. 

Please note that this plan can be altered or changed at any time based upon the most recent health information and recommendations from the city health department and AASD nurses.

AASD Activities Directors will work directly with AASD coaches and Licensed Athletic Trainers (LAT’s) to implement Phase 1 of the Return to Play plan with fidelity. This will ensure that all coaches are consistently following the guidelines that are in place to protect the safety of our student-athletes, coaches, families and community members. As part of the Return to Play plan, there will be an ongoing monitoring system in place that will include a daily check-in for each athlete. 

Before any consideration of moving to Phase 2 of the Return to Play plan, a full review of Phase 1 will be completed. This will include feedback and recommendations from AASD nurses, our city health department and the Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
