Important points from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) update:
No sports competitions between schools until late January at the earliest.
On January 4 the CDPH will reassess the situation and send out another update.
The sports we will offer are dependent on the tier, contact-level, and location of activity.
These are the sports that we are looking into as options for the 2020-2021 school year, aligned with tier and location.
Please continue to submit health examination and online forms. Transfer students will need to fill out an additional form that I submit through the CCS office. Athletic Forms and FAQ

We will need a lot of help with driving this year as students will need additional space, and both parents and athletes may not be comfortable riding with non-household members. While we have our school van that can normally hold six athletes, we will probably only be able to safely transport two players with the van.
In order to play sports at Kehillah, it is required by the state of California that all athletes perform, and submit a Health Examination physical that is dated within 12 months of the participation dates.
Please note that all forms need to be signed and returned before they can participate in any activity (practice, match). This is California state law.
***Please note the following:
- • We receive a number of Health Examinations where the physical date is outside of the 12 month window, or will expire during the season.
- • The relevant date is not when the form is signed by the physician, it is the actual date of the most recent physical examination.
- • If a physical expires during the season, the student will need to get an examination, and have the form filled out before they are able to continue participating in the season.
We are looking forward to a great year of athletics! Please reach out to Ryan Greenfield at email@example.com if you have any questions or would like to submit your health forms.
