There will be no fall sports at Academy Park in 2020.
After Southeast Delco School District’s board of school directors voted last week to approve an all-virtual educational plan for the fall marking period, the school district followed Monday with the announcement that it would suspend all sports this fall.
Southeast Delco is the first school district in the county to cancel fall sports. Other districts, including Radnor, Upper Darby and Haverford, have decided to begin the year with virtual learning but have not yet cancelled athletics.
Late Monday evening, Academy Park posted on its football team’s Twitter account that “it is our hope that student-athletes may be able to lace them up this spring.”
