January 27, 2022
DAYTON—Dayton School District announced Tuesday, January 25, that the secondary grades (6-12) will temporarily return to online learning beginning January 26. A COVID-19 spike in the community prompted the switch.
The district said they plan to return to in-person learning on Monday, January 31.
Due to a high number of COVID-19 cases, the Columbia County Public Health Department (CCPH) and Chief Health Officer have halted all DW Athletic Combine basketball activities beginning Wednesday, January 26, with a plan to reevaluate on Monday, January 31. There will be no middle or high school practices or games until that time.
Should the CCPH allow teams to return to practice by Monday, January 31, high school practices will resume at regular times, with all athletes being re-tested before practice. Middle school girls will be tested on Tuesday morning and resume practice as scheduled that afternoon.
The games scheduled for January 29 against River View have been rescheduled for Thursday, February 3. The middle school game at Prescott is canceled as of Tuesday with the hope of rescheduling later in the season. Updated schedules are available on dwsports.org
