AW Athletic Events are Now Live Streamed
As Anthony Wayne continues with athletics in 2021, we understand many are frustrated with the inability to attend live events due to current restrictions set by the Ohio Department of Health and the Governor's Office. With this in mind, we are very happy to announce that all home Anthony Wayne High School athletic events played in the Dick Albaugh Gymnasium will now be live streamed to anyone in the community via YouTube. These will be events of all levels; Freshmen, JV and Varsity.
To watch live, please visit https://www.anthonywayneschools.org/AWSportsLiveStreams. From this link, select the sport and then enjoy the event! It’s that simple.
Please note, the only exception will be athletic events aired live on BCSN. Contractually we are unable to live stream these via YouTube.
While we continue to miss having all of you in the stands, this is our effort to allow you to still be a part of the game.

Vaccinations for K-12 Employees in Ohio
On Tuesday, the Governor announced that K-12 employees will have access to receive the COVID-19 vaccine starting the week of February 1st through a local, approved provider. On Thursday, AWLS received COVID-19 vaccination paperwork from the Educational Service Center of Northwest Ohio to submit to the Ohio Department of Health (ODH). This paperwork was completed and submitted to ODH on Thursday afternoon. AWLS is working to select a specific provider at this time. Once the provider and the District can agree on a format for vaccinations, we will secure dates and times for vaccination distribution. We look forward to working with all partners on this process.
The Governor and/or the Ohio Department of Health have not released a plan to provide vaccinations to students at this time. There is only one vaccine that has been approved at this time for only students 16 year or older. Health Departments have shared that there is a vaccination in a trial study for students 12 years or older at this time but we have not received a timetable on its potential approval.
AWLS COVID-19 Data
The District has placed COVID-19 on the AWLS website for your review at: https://www.anthonywayneschools.org/Coronavirus. You can find this information by scrolling down to the chart that is located half way down the page. Each Friday, the District will update the data. At the bottom of this information on the website you will see the weekly change in the student and staff numbers for each category.
Winter Weather & School
The local news channels are sharing today that they are watching a potential winter storm that may provide snow on Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning. While I hope this snow event doesn’t happen, since I would much prefer 80 degrees and sunny, we do need to be prepared that the weather conditions may lead to a cancellation or delay of school. If school is cancelled as a result of unsafe travel conditions on the roads, there will be no school on that day either in person or in a remote setting. If school is delayed two hours, we will have a normal two hour delay schedule as we’ve had in past school years. If there is a specific class schedule change related to the two hour delay that information will be shared from each building. School cancellations and delays will be communicated through SchoolMessenger.
Have a great day and Go Generals!!

Athletics and Spectator Guidelines,
Due to the recent governor announcement regarding high school athletics and spectator guidelines, the AW Athletic Department will need to make adjustments to our attendance policy in order to follow OHSAA and ODH policy. With this policy, our capacity allowed at all athletic events has been dramatically decreased. While we understand many throughout our community would love to attend athletic events as they always have in the past; unfortunately given the times, this just will not be possible this season.
Effective for the 2020 Fall season (with a possibility to go to Winter and Spring) ALL tickets must be purchased online. There will be no cash ticket sales completed at Anthony Wayne. All ticket sales will be reserved for close family of the athlete and event participants. In addition, there will be a max number of tickets that can be ordered per purchase depending on the capacity of the event. There will be no ticket sales to the general public - nor will we sell any AW athletic passes, nor accept NLL passes, senior citizen passes or staff IDs.
Approximately 48 hours prior to an athletic event the head coach will send a pre-sale code to the parents of the athletes in that sport to purchase a ticket. After purchase, the ticket holder should bring their phone or paper ticket to the ticket booth to be scanned for entry. Each event will have a different passcode.
Last, we will be requiring masks for all spectators to wear for entry and throughout the event. All spectators are subject to a temperature screening upon entry and are asked to sit/stand socially distant from others.
Again, we recognize and are sensitive to the fact MANY General fans would like to be in attendance where you just simply can't. We appreciate your loyalty and dedication to AW Athletics. We look forward to passing on to everyone televised options, as well as potential athletic streaming options.
