A message from TAPPS, the Texas Athletic Asociation of Private and Parochial Schools:

After much consideration and evaluation, the TAPPS Executive Board determined the following in regard to interscholastic competition in the near term.  

  • Games / Contests
    • TAPPS is suspending all interscholastic competition through April 12, 2020.  This action will take us through the Easter Break. If your teams are in competition today they may conclude today’s  (March 13) activities.
    • If it is deemed safe at that time to resume participation, we will have developed a plan for championship competition for each activity, given the constraints of scheduling and available facilities.
  • Practice
    • If your school is in session, then it will be left to local discretion on whether teams may practice.  
    • If your school has closed campus (which includes online or digital classes), then practice is not allowed.
  • Athletic Activities
    • The suspension shall be in place for those activities governed by the organization and includes
      • Baseball
      • Golf
      • Softball
      • Tennis 
      • Track
  • Fine Art Activities
    • As a result of the suspension, the following fine art activities will have the method of competition amended to allow for the competition to move forward without the exposure of large crowds or numbers of participants.
      • Music – Solo and Small Ensemble
      • Music – Medium and Large Ensemble
      • Academics
      • Speech/LD Debate
      • Art
      • Robotics
