The Idaho High School Activities Association (IHSAA), in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, announced via news release Tuesday the mandatory suspension/postponement of activities – which was set to end April 5 – will continue through April 20.

The new date aligns with the recommendations that came from the Idaho State Board of Education’s “soft closure” of schools.

The IHSAA “will continue to monitor and align with any future recommendations that come from the Idaho SBOE and Gov. Little’s office,” the release said.

The IHSAA is continuing to work on potential contingency plans for any upcoming spring events that might occur, including potential spring sports state tournaments.

The Idaho statewide stay-home order runs through at least April 15.
