(Shared by Email with Parents & Students on 11/24/20)
Good afternoon, Monticello family!
With the Virginia High School League (VHSL) winter sports season upon us, I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you information and steps necessary for participation. First, it is our mission to share the values of respect and fair play with every student, every day through participation in VHSL athletics and activities. Second, I’ll clarify that all VHSL athletics and activities are extra-curricular, therefore voluntary and optional for any student to participate. Finally, I encourage you to carefully review the information below and reach out directly to the coaches for sport-specific questions or to join my ‘Monticello Athletics Town Hall Zoom’ next Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 6:30pm. The link is at the bottom of this communication.
COVID-19 Safety Information
In an effort to support a healthy and safe environment for our student-athletes, coaches and others, Albemarle County Public Schools (ACPS) has developed a website specifically for the sharing of Health and Safety measures for athletics/extra-curricular activities. Please CLICK HERE for this website. Also, the VHSL has developed sport-specific Guidelines for Return to Participation. Please CLICK HERE to view the VHSL’s guidelines.
Coach Contact Info & First Tryouts/Practice Date
Activity Buses are intended to assist parents by providing transportation from and to pre-determined points (links below), and are not a school-to-home means of transportation. Students should confirm with the driver that they are on the correct bus. During ACPS’ Stage 3 of the Reopening of Schools, activity bus times are set for a 6:00pm arrival at Monticello High School, and will depart from the bus loop at Monticello High School promptly at 8:00pm on all regular school days.
Monticello Activity Bus 1 – Pantops/Keswick
Monticello Activity Bus 2 – Scottsville/Esmont

All competition schedules for the upcoming school year are posted online at www.GoMonticello.org, click ‘CALENDAR’. As always, schedules are subject to change. This online schedule is updated in real time with updates from the athletics department.
All VHSL Activities are proceeding virtually at this time. If you are interested in joining any of our VHSL Activities programs, please contact the respective coach.
