A message from the Athletic Director

August 12, 2020

Dear Knight Fans,

Below is Pope John Paul II High School's Covid-19 plan for each of our Fall Sports programs. As we all know, the situation we face is very fluid, and we may need to adjust or adapt as we progress throughout the coming weeks. JPII will abide by the AAP, CDC, Governor Bill Lee, and the TSSAA guidelines.

We are all very excited and happy that school is open, and our student-athletes are currently able to compete in the sports programs that they love so much. It is everyone's responsibility to follow the protocol and keep one another safe. We appreciate your cooperation with the guidelines outlined below and look forward to a safe and successful school year.

Go Knights!

John Dempsey
