As of July 20, 2021


The 1st day of school is Monday, August 9, 2021.


As of now, the plan is for a on-campus return for instruction. There are plans that are still in development and can change depending on the direction of the LA County of Public Health and LAUSD (oversees the ECR property). 


All students who have been vaccinated will need to submit their verification cards at some point. Students who are not vaccinated will have to continue to be COVID tested regularly. All students will have to wear face masks, vaccinated or not, in the classroom.


If the student (and/or staff) do not test, if not vaccinated, the current guideline states that they will not be allowed on campus. Students will have to log in to the "Royal Pass" app daily.


We will continue to advocate social distancing, wearing a mask, sanitizing equipments after use, and personal hygiene by all participants.




We will try to approach the sports year as normal as possible, where allowed.

With the new bell schedule, it will make an impact on gamedays.  Students will miss 5th period more than usual due to the new bell schedule and agreed game schedule per sport. We will make an attempt to start the games later to lessen the impact but it is not guaranteed. 


Sports Eligibility: No Change

  1. All students are required to maintain a 2.0 minimum, non-weighted, GPA at the 10 and 20 week report cards

Practice:  All student-athletes will be required to attend the 0 period or 5th or 6th period sports class daily. Attendance will be officially taken. Unless there is a change, lockers will be provided. We will have 3 sports seasons so students will be able to participate in multiple sports. 


Student-Athletes will practice according to the coach's practice plans. 


Games:  We are looking forward to a regular game schedule. We are looking forward to having spectators cheer and support the athletes. The teams will travel by bus.

Go ECR!!



As of 12/8/20


On December 1, 2020, the CIF State Office announced the postponement of the start of the 2020-21 CIF Calendar. Official practice for Season 1 Sports was scheduled to start on December 14, 2020. It will be delayed until after January 2, 2021. A new start date was not announced. The decision to postpone was based on the most recent surge of COVID numbers. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has postponed the release of the updated guidelines for athletic teams and competition. In addition, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LADPH) has also not released guidelines for competition and use of indoor facilities. 


All student athletes in the sports class periods will continue to meet virtually through Teams until the end of the semester. We anticipate starting the Spring 2021 Semester in the virtual setting as well.


We encourage all our students athletes, coaches, staff, and all stakeholder groups to continue to, in a safe manner and following county health guidelines, remain physically active. 


Our next update from the CIF Office will be given as early as January 2, 2021 to January 19, 2021.


We are in a fluid situation however we remain cautiously optimistic that conditions will improve with time. If the COVID-19 stats changes where it allows for normal practice and competition, we expect to have a short period of time to condition/prepare physically, play a limited game schedule, possibility of no spectators in the stands, and several other conditions that will need to be met. 


We advise all to complete the prerequisites now:

- Physical (renew for returning student athletes)

- Emergency Form

- Complete the NFHS COVID-19 Course for Coaches and Administrators (having all students and coaches complete as a prerequisite)


There will also be a Survey for Parents/Guardians and a waiver form but the links will be provided by the respective coach once we are closer to the restart.


In regards to tryouts, once allowed, it will be announced on the website and the ECR Athletics Twitter site. Tryouts will be short and modified. The prerequisites will be the same as noted above. Please have a physical, emergency form, and complete the NFHS COVID-19 Course completed soon. Otherwise time may not be on your side.


Please continue to social distance, wear a mask, wash/sanitize your hands, and limit your gatherings. The messaging to slow the spread has not changed. For high school sports and normalcy to return, the COVID-19 data must improve.
