Twinsburg schools set to reopen athletic facilities June 15


The Twinsburg City School District looks to ready to reopen for its student-athletes. 

In a letter to parents Wednesday, Superintendent Kathi Powers noted district had received approval for its fall sports athletic conditioning reopening plan from the Summit County Board of Health.

As a result, all Twinsburg High School fall sports athletes, with the exception of the cross country program, will begin to condition using the district's outdoor facilities June 15.

“Our district's outdoor athletic facilities will reopen on Monday, June 15,” Powers said. “Due to social distancing requirements, the outdoor facilities will be used exclusively by our athletes between the hours of 8 and 11 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays until further notice.”

The Tigers’ cross country is not included in this plan, as coach Sara Kmet will handle her program in a virtual sense during phase one of reopening.

Kmet will provide specific information directly to her athletes and their parents. Powers also noted further information will be forthcoming to all Twinsburg fall sports athletes and parents via athletic director Brian Fantone and the programs’ head coaches.

Twinsburg follows several local districts in reopening, as Nordonia Hill City Schools reopened its athletic facilities on June 1 and Aurora City Schools did so on June 8.
