State high school league suspends activities

The Minnesota State High School League released an update to the spring activity participation guidelines Wednesday afternoon. 

In the press release, the MSHSL announced effective immediately all participation in league-sponsored activities is suspended. Participation includes, but is not limited to, competitions, training, practices, scrimmages and contests. 

The suspension will be in effect until the Gov. Tim Walz has lifted his school closure declaration. At that time, return to participation protocols will be determined and communicated by the MSHSL Board and MSHSL staff. 

The suspension includes fine arts activities and athletics, as well as the section and state speech tournaments, music contests, visual arts competitions and state festival, MSHSL state robotics tournament and the MSHSL clay target state tournament. 

No decisions have been made regarding the cancellation of spring activities at this time. 

Additional information will be provided by the MSHSL as it becomes available.
