April 16 Update: Spring Sports Fee Refunds
As you all know, we are dealing with many firsts and this is no exception. We want to make sure we have an efficient process for refund requests and this will require a response from parents/guardians.
If you would like a refund of the spring sports fee, please contact Laurie Laney by May 15. Please email Laurie.Laney@Corvallis.k12.or.us or call 541-757-5917 to request a refund. If you would like to donate your payment to the CHS Athletic Department, please contact Laurie to let her know. Here are the scenarios for refunds:
- Checks can be voided and shredded with your consent OR you can pick up the check when we open the school again; these have not been cashed.
- Cards and Cash -will be refunded with a refund check that will be mailed to you.
This was not the Spring season we ever imagined. We strongly urge you to be safe and stay healthy. We cannot wait to see students back in school next year!
A message for the Spartan Community from Athletic Director Salvador Muñoz
I wanted to share with you that due to the closure of our schools for the remainder of the academic year, the Oregon School Activities Association has decided to suspend our Spring sports season. This is devastating to all of us, especially our Class of 2020 because this was their last opportunity to compete for our school alongside their peers.
Many of you have put in a lot of work throughout this year and many years before in preparation for this season. Unfortunately, you will not have the opportunity to display those skills. This affects not only student-athletes but also parents/guardians, peers, staff and the community.
Class of 2020, I know it’s a tough reality but I know that you will do great things in the future; this will make you stronger. Future classes, let’s learn from this so that the next opportunity you get to compete for the Corvallis High School Spartans, you are more ready than ever. Be safe, take care, do not be afraid to ask for help. As always, Go Spartans!
Full announcement from OSAA
“Today’s heart-wrenching decision is difficult for all members of the OSAA family,” said Peter Weber, OSAA Executive Director. “We empathize with students and school communities, especially our firstname.lastname@example.org seniors, but recognize that these cancellations will allow our collective focus to remain where it’s most needed at this time – on the health and safety of all Oregonians.”
“We had maintained hope for an abbreviated Spring season to help bring a sense of normalcy to these uncertain times,” continued Weber. “Now more than ever we need to apply the lessons learned through participation in education-based activities – teamwork, sacrifice, resilience – and play our role in adhering to the public health guidelines. We all look forward to the day when we play again.”
Current OSAA policies prohibiting the use of school facilities and coaches from organizing or directing workouts and practices remain in effect until further notice. The OSAA Executive Board will meet in the coming weeks to discuss policies for summer activities, along with academic eligibility concerns for Fall 2020 that have been expressed by member schools and families. The OSAA and our member schools are currently awaiting guidance from ODE on credit attainment for 9th-11th grade students through the state’s Distance Learning for All initiative.
