The COVID-19 pandemic has presented athletics across the world with a myriad of challenges. The Shippensburg Area School District will take the necessary precautions and recommendations from the federal, state and local governments, CDC, PA Department of Health, as well as the National Federation of State High School Association (NFHS) and PIAA. On June 24, 2020, the Shippensburg Area School Board of Directors approved the SASD Athletic Department Resocialization of Sports Recommendations. Click on the following link to review the plan:
