Tonight's high school softball game versus Danville has been canceled and will not be made up. Following Union rules and regulations, this game will be deemed a forfeit by the visiting team, as the game could have been played. We understand that schools will have concerns surrounding Covid-19 and the mitigation process that each school takes. Again, we have no softball player to date that has tested positive for Covid-19 and have no concern with any of our players. Below are our procedures that we developed with the Henry County Public Health team for testing and quarantining individuals due to COVID-19.

1. Untested. Persons who have not received a test proving or disproving the presence of COVID-19 but experience symptoms may return if the following four conditions are met:
a. They have not had a fever for at least 72 hours (that is three full days of
no fever without the use of medicine that reduces fevers); and
b. Other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or
shortness of breath have improved); and
c. At least ten (10) calendar days have passed since your symptoms first
appeared.
d. A student/athlete will be excluded from practice and competition according to the guidelines stated above unless proof of a negative
COVID-19 test is provided to the school.

2. Tested positive with symptoms. Persons who experience symptoms and have
tested positive for COVID-19 may return to practice/competition if the following three
conditions are met:
a. They no longer have a fever for at least 72 hours (that is three full days of
no fever without the use of medicine that reduces fevers); and
b. Other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or
shortness of breath have improved); and
c. At least 10 days have passed since their symptoms first appeared.

3. Tested positive with no symptoms. Persons who test positive for COVID-19
but do not experience symptoms should self-isolate until:
a. At least ten (10) calendar days have passed since the date of the first positive test; and
b. They continue to have no symptoms (for example, no cough or shortness of breath) since the test.

4. Tested negative. Persons with symptoms of COVID-19 who are tested and test negative can go back to daily activities 24 hours after their fever and other symptoms have subsided.

5. Tested Negative. Persons with symptoms of COVID-19 who are tested and test negative, but were in direct contact with a positive COVID-19 case must quarantine 14 days from the latest date in which you came in direct contact with the person with the positive case.

What about youth league softball are those games still being played?

Covid-19 Softball update,

This morning we received news from the family of our student athlete that their daughter’s test results came back negative. This is great news for our athlete, family and community. We know that this year will be very trying at different times and we must lean on the professionals and data that will help guide us in our decision-making process. What we found from several hours of conversations yesterday with both the Girls Union and the Henry County Health Department is that we need to act on each case individually. The Girls Union reported that 20 schools have dealt with a Covid-19 case thus far this season. Out of those 20 school 15 have continued to play their season without quarantine because they have practiced social distancing at all times, sanitized properly, and adhered to all other protocols. The Girls Union also shared that out of all 20 schools there has not yet been a case of player to player transmission. Our district’s leaders, coaches, players, families, and community need to be recognized for working together to keep every person safe.

There is no “one size fits all” policy or practice that a School District can adopt and put into place to stop this virus. However, we as a district and community need to take preventative measures to control it the best we can. It is important to make sure we continue to practice the guidelines that have been set for us all. With this in mind we will continue to monitor our expectations during practices and games, so we are ensuring the safest environment for everyone. We have been in contact with our opposing team for tonight’s game and we have agreed to play ball.

Sincerely,

Chad Wahls & Ben Fry

From West Burlington Activities Director - Jeff Housel regarding tonight's (7/2) Baseball Game:

In addition to the state's COVID-19 guidelines we will have separate entries for West Burlington and New London. West Burlington spectators will sit in the along the 3rd base and left field side and use the bathrooms attached to the pressbox. New London spectators will sit along the 1st base and right field side and use the bathrooms in the admin building beyond the right field fence.

Only designated players from the defensive team will retrieve foul balls and return to the defensive dugout. West Burlington varsity players will stretch and throw on the practice football field at 6:30 PM and New London players will be allowed to stretch and throw at 6:45 PM.

After the JV game we will take infield followed by New London then we will do a brief senior night presentation, starting lineups and national anthem.

New London Community School District

In light of the recent news regarding a positive case of Covid-19 in a teenager here in New London, we are making the following decisions. These decisions have been made in correspondence with the Henry County Health Department, Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, and parents.

We have had one softball player come into close contact with a summer non-athlete/student that has recently tested positive. This player has been recently tested and is waiting on their results. To take extra precautions we have postponed our softball game with West Burlington until next Thursday, July 9, 2020. Upon receipt of the results being negative or positive the school will work with the Henry County Health Department to determine the future of the season.

We have interviewed the two students and their parents to help make further decisions as well. These families have taken it upon themselves to self-quarantine their other siblings from participating in youth baseball/softball until their 14 days are complete or a negative test is provided.

Through our review we found no information that would support needing to make any changes or regulations to our baseball program. Tonight they will travel to West Burlington to play.

Please understand that providing information is important, but upholding students and families privacy and confidentiality is even more important. We will continue to provide the most accurate information when dealing with Covid-19 situations throughout the year. We thank you in advance for your respect and patience in these matters.

Sincerely,

Mr. Wahls & Ben Fry

New London Baseball/Softball players, parents, & fans be advised.

In light of recent events and guidelines regarding athletic events, I wanted to share some information about the upcoming home baseball and softball games at New London. Please share this information to anyone who intends on attending a New London High School Baseball or Softball game this summer.

1. We will still have all of our regular admission gates. However, exact change is encouraged to assist with the exchange of money from person-to-person. A bucket/basket may be set up in hopes that you are able to show your money to the ticket taker and if you have exact change, you’re able to drop it in without any intrapersonal exchange.

2. Admission for all contests will be $5 – this has been a recent change by the Southeast Iowa Super Conference to aid in the management and exchange of money from person-to-person.

3. Sports and Conference Passes will be accepted, but you must display your Pass upon entering the facility.

4. Bus Drivers, Coaches, and Players will enter the facility for free. All other personnel are expected to pay admission. (With some districts exploring the option of having parents transport their own student-athlete, this ensures that parents that are attending the games to watch are still paying entry fees.

5. All fans (home and away) are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs in order aid in the social distancing practices. Our bleachers will be available, but will be limited to 50% capacity and will be asked to do their best to socially distance themselves.

6. With our facilities being owned and operated by the New London Junior Baseball Association, our concessions stand near the softball diamond will be open on nights in which the Little League is holding games. Fans are able to bring their own drinks and snacks to the games.

7. NO SUNFLOWER SEEDS ARE ALLOWED BY PLAYERS, COACHES, OR FANS.

8. The fields in New London are tobacco and pet free facilities. (Unless animal is designated as a service animal)

9. IF YOU’RE NOT FEELING WELL, PLEASE STAY HOME.

10. During the game, foul balls are to be retrieved by the defensive team only. (If a fan retrieves a ball, it must be sanitized upon return to the dugout)

Tiger Softball Fans. The apparel orders have been delivered and are sitting in the District Office hallway.

Please swing by and grab your gear!

Let’s Celebrate the Class of 2020

Graduation will commence on Saturday, June 13, 2020 at 8:00PM on the football field, the weather forecast looks beautiful for that evening. Below we have listed the many expectations and accommodations that we will follow to help provide for a memorable night for our 46 graduating seniors.

Seating – We ask that everyone that is planning to attend graduation bring a lawn chair as seating will not be provided. The football field will be marked with lines that will provide enough seating for 10 invites of each graduate. If more than 10 members join in the celebration community members, students or other visitors additional seating will be designated in the back. We will also allow viewing from the plaza and outside of the fence area that will be available for standing room only or accommodate wheel chair bound visitors as well.

Pictures – Mr. White has contacted a few members of the year book class to take pictures during the graduation ceremonies. These pictures will be available for you to access free of charge. A google drive will collect all of the pictures and we will share this drive on our Facebook account for your use. At the same time, we encourage you to take pictures as well. We have developed aisles between sections of seating that would provide you these opportunities. We do ask that once you have taken your picture that you take your seat again to provide viewing for others attending.

Hygiene – We will make hand sanitizer available at several stations around the venue. Bathrooms connected to the concession stand will be available before, during and after the celebration. The bathrooms will only be cleaned prior to graduation and available for sanitation if requested.

Mask – No face covering of any kind will be mandatory to attend or participate in the graduation celebration. We ask that everyone respect each other and their personal decision in regards to wearing a mask. Mask will not be made available so please bring your own if you’re in need of one. A special donation of 2020 graduate mask were donated to the senior class, these mask, will be given to them at rehearsal practice on Friday at 10AM and they will be given the choice to wear them at commencement.

Diplomas – School Board President Lindsay Porter will hand each graduate their diploma like usual. The graduate will continue to be congratulated by the other board members, and administration team. We will shake hands with each graduate, but respect each individual that may not want to participate in a hand shake and provide an alternative fist bump, elbow tap, or just a congratulations comment. Again, we will have hand sanitizer available for everyone prior and post this ceremonial gesture.

Congratulations Class of 2020!

Chad Wahls, Scott Kracht, & Todd Palmatier

I’m assuming students are allowed to this??

2020 Senior Spotlight!!

While we, like many others, are disappointed that we aren't able to do the 2020 Senior Spotlight in person, we hope that this video will fill some of the gaps. We want to congratulate the senior class on their accomplishments during their time at New London and wish them the best in the future!
