Important Athletics Update - January 5, 2021
As we look forward to reopening our schools in January, we have decided to continue to postpone our athletics and performing arts programs until our students can more safely interact. Mapleton and the Skyview Wolverines will not be participating in Season B sports, which includes boys and girls wrestling and boys and girls basketball.
At this time, we have not made a decision on Season C, which includes football, boys soccer, and girls volleyball, or Season D, which includes baseball, girls soccer, and track and field.
Small, student cohorts are a proven and effective way to keep students and staff healthy. Cohorts limit interactions between students and staff and keep students in a more protected environment where we can monitor the health of those within the cohort. We know this is very disappointing news. We value the benefits of these programs and are committed to getting them reopened. We are also committed to finding other engaging opportunities for our students to socially connect while staying physically distant. For questions or more information please contact Susan Gerhart, Director of Athletics and Student Activities, 303.853.1248.

Message from the Athletic Department
Middle School Sports Cancelled Through 2020
Due to the current circumstances with the COVID-19 health concerns, Mapleton Public Schools has decided to cancel all middle school sports through the remainder of the 2020 calendar year. This includes football, boys soccer, girls volleyball, and boys basketball. A decision will be made at a later date regarding sports in the second half of the school year.
Spring Season Registration Refund
Due to the loss of the spring season due to COVID-19, if you registered and paid for a spring sport you will have two options regarding your registration fee. The first option is if you are a current 9th through 11th grader and plan on playing a sport next year, you have the option to transfer your fee from this year’s spring season to a sport next year. The second option is to simply get a refund. This option is for current 12th graders or individuals not planning on playing a sport next year. Both options will be handled after the district reopens and we return to normal operations. For those who paid for Middle School registration, we will provide a refund. If you paid with a check that has not been deposited yet, we will not cash the check.
For those athletes that were given a uniforms/gear during any season this year, you will still be expected to return the uniform. Students are responsible for taking care of all uniforms/gear and will need to return everything upon us returning to normal operations. Any students who do not return uniforms/gear will not be allowed to register for another sport until you return all materials. For current 12th graders, please find a time after the district reopens to return any uniforms/gear.
For those of you that purchased pictures for the Winter Season and have yet to receive them, we want to assure you that we have the pictures. However, due to the closure of school buildings and the cancelations of banquets, we were unable to hand them out. Upon us returning to our offices, we will come up with a plan to get the pictures out.
Please be aware that with everything above, we are still in the planning stages. When we get closer to business as usual, we will provide a more detailed plan and explanation on how everything will occur. We thank you for your patience in the unusual time. Take care and stay safe!
SPORTSMANSHIP IS FIRST - CHEER FOR YOUR TEAM!
Fair play, courtesy, generosity, self-control and friendly feelings for the opposing team or school shall not be sacrificed in the desire to win. The Mapleton School District will take every possible measure to assure courteous, friendly, and fair treatment to visiting players, officials, fans and game officials.
As a Mapleton student, you have the opportunity to compete in a variety of junior high and high school sports as a proud Skyview Wolverine.
