Spring Sports CancellationOut of abundance of caution regarding the health and safety of our staff and student/athletes, the decision has been made to cancel the remainder of the 2020 Spring Sports season. While we know that this is highly disappointing to our amazing student/athletes, DoDEA leadership feels that it is the best decision under the circumstances. We ask that everyone take all precautions necessary to stay safe and healthy during these challenging times. Thank you, as always, for your support.
