“We are thrilled to announce a safe return to competition this spring,” school superintendent Dr. Keith P. Posley said. “Athletics are an integral extension of the classroom, and we look forward to watching our student-athletes safely compete, build relationships, and create lifelong memories.”

All academically eligible high school students may participate in spring sports.

MPS has developed a Return-to-Play Game Plan to ensure the safety of student-athletes, coaches, officials, event staff, and spectators. Safety protocols will be followed by each of our conference schools in order to safely operate, including mask-wearing and regular sanitizing.

During the spring regular season, teams will compete against fellow MPS City Conference members. Teams will only compete against non-MPS schools if they qualify for Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) postseason play.

Athletic families and student-athletes should visit mpsmke.com/athletics to register online for sports prior to the start of spring practice.

Please wait while we gather your results.
