Athletic training at Palo Alto High School is set to resume Jan. 19 following recent changes in the California Department of Public Health guidelines, according to a message from Paly Athletic Director Nelson Gifford.

“We are proud of the commitment the district has made to create these opportunities, and we will continue to do our part to develop the bodies and minds of future generations,” Gifford and Henry M. Gunn Athletic Director Curt Johansen stated in the letter to the PAUSD community. 

Given the most recent regulations, Palo Alto Unified School District has updated its athletic guidelines which now state that no indoor activities will be permitted while the county remains in purple tier and masks will be required at all times. 

Athletic training originally shut down in late November due to the county’s shift into purple tier which, at the time, did not permit school sports to run.
