The Viborg-Hurley School District will be opening facility use to student-athletes in grades 7th – 12th (2020-21) following school issued safety guidelines as well as closely following SDHSAA Summer Contact Guidelines and CDC Safety Guidelines on June 1st. Facility use will be narrowed to weight rooms, gymnasiums, football fields, and only one set of restrooms per building. Students will need to bring their own water bottles and follow all posted guidelines while using the facilities. Parents/Guardians will need to complete and return the summer use waiver form in order for the student-athlete to have facility access. These waivers can be found on the school website or at the front doors of each building (inside the drop boxes). Coaches will be coordinating with athletes regarding use time of the facilities to allow for proper supervision. Viborg-Hurley Student Waiver (https://5il.co/gspq), Viborg-Hurley facility use guidelines (https://5il.co/gspo), Viborg-Hurley weight room use guidelines (https://5il.co/gspr), SDHSAA summer contact guidelines (https://5il.co/gspy).

With the onset of extremely cold temperatures this week, we are asking parents to make sure that their children are dressed in appropriate winter gear (coat, gloves, snowpants, hats, scarves, snowboots) before venturing outside. Even a short time exposed to these temperatures can lead to frostbite. We also encourage parents to make sure that students driving in their own vehicles to school have these items as well as a winter survival kit with them. You never know when a car might stall or slip into the ditch. Vehicles cool off quickly in these temps including school buses.
