Enrollment losses allow 2 coastal schools to avoid moving up a class in some sports – About Your Online Magazine


Two independent secondary schools on the coast will get some relief from COVID-19 regarding the reclassification of sports over the next two years in response to the impact of the pandemic on their enrollment.

The Washington Academy of East Machias will move from Class B to Class C in various sports in the academic years 2021-22 and 2022-23, while the George Stevens Academy of Blue Hill will remain in Class C for men’s and women’s basketball.

The final reclassification of all sports teams sanctioned by the Maine Principals’ Association for those academic years has been approved by the general members of that organization.
