Spring Semester Sports Cancelled With Possibility to Start Re-Planning on January 19th
Williamson County is in RED - Uncontrolled Community Transmission. Wilco Health District recommendations are "Stay Home / Stay Safe”. It will take two weeks of significant decline in cases to move to a lower risk category and another two to move to YELLOW - where we began school in September and operated until recently.

Under the Governor’s order, schools must remain open for those families who determine it is best for their children to attend. We recognize that most students do far better learning in person than they do virtually. Therefore, it is our priority to continue on-campus instruction - both legally and because we believe it is the right thing to do.

In order to do this, we must keep the campus as safe and illness-free as possible for students and staff to continue coming. With this priority in mind, we have made the difficult decision to limit activities to academic pursuits until the situation changes. Second semester sports, at this stage, are on hold with the possibility of cancellation. If the situation improves dramatically by January 19th, and it’s possible to reconsider, we will. We will keep the Athletics website up-to-date, and updates will be shared in the weekly secondary newsletter, The Lions Share, when available.

We know that other schools and leagues continue with UIL and club sports. Because of the lean nature of our teaching and administrative staff, we do not feel that is a risk we are able to take while knowing our goal is to deliver quality academics during this time.
We appreciate your support and as always, should you have questions, please contact Meridian-Athletics@mwschool.org
