Panthers News · Football will happen this 2021 school year!

To our SMHS community, 

The announcement for outdoor full-contact sports has been made by Oregon Health Authorities. Football will happen this 2021 school year! We want to thank our MSD Superintendent Dr. Bret Champion and the MSD School Board members for their support and letters recommending the community needs to OHA and governing officials. This is one step in the right direction to get students back in the classroom and on the field. 

Here at South Medford we are grateful for your perseverance and patience through this process. We will still have obstacles to overcome and safety procedures we will have to adhere to. Please be evermore patient as details unfold regarding football events. Below you will find important dates and links that must be followed. 

Please keep track of the first full-contact practice date and the MSD Community Agreement that must be signed to participate. 

OHA requires all participating schools to provide the Covid-19 Consent form.


If you have any questions please reach out to our SMHS football staff or our Athletics Department at 541-842-5350
