Bruins News · If Curious: Protocols at School Throughout the State


A list has been put together by statewide ADs showing what schools are doing in regard to COVID protocols. I will share the entire list for now since there are few of our opponents on the list yet. Over time, as those are added, I will delete the schools we do not compete against. But this will give you an idea of how different it is as schools do what they feel is best for their communities (and based on guidance from their County Health Departments).

Please keep in mind that this list may change by school depending on how COVID numbers play out in their communities.

Right now the list is not in alphabetical order. Hopefully, that changes soon. 🙂
