FULTON, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The Fulton City School District Board of Education voted on Tuesday night to not play any fall sports under the state guidelines.
After an hour-long meeting on Tuesday, the board decided to not play low and moderate risk sports as Section III voted to do this past Friday.
Low and moderate risk sports are set to begin practice on Sept. 21st. High-risk sports like football volleyball and competitive cheer had already been pushed back to the spring by Section III set to begin on March 1, 2021.
Governor Andrew Cuomo is not allowing high risk sports to compete in games and has promised a decision by December 31st.
The members on the board were concerned that any fall sports could compromise the health of students as they would have to interact with other school districts.
So, I will send out correspondence indicating that… We are not going to participate in fall sports based on the support of this board.Fulton City School District Superintendent Brian Pulvino
