WHSAA will require spectators to wear a mask at all playoff, regional and state sporting events. If you do not wear a mask you will be asked to leave the event.
Thank you for your help in supporting these rules so our students can continue to participate in their high school sporting events.
Wyoming School Districts have received new requirements from WHSAA (Wyoming High School Activities Association) regarding protocols for Winter Sports. Carbon 2’s goal is to be able to allow our students to complete their basketball and wrestling seasons without interruptions due to Covid quarantines.
WHSAA is requiring face coverings for all who attend basketball and wrestling events from entrance to exit. The only exceptions are players and officials while on the court. NO PLASTIC MASKS OR FACE SHIELDS WILL BE ALLOWED. No food or drink will be allowed in the gyms.
TICKETS WILL BE REQUIRED FOR ENTRANCE. Please contact each high school office with questions regarding attendance to events. There will be a 100 spectator limit with 75 tickets being available for the home team and 25 tickets available for the visiting team. Likely, we will only have room for parents of players - and tickets will be distributed primarily through the players. Schools that do not follow WHSAA and State Health Orders will be subject to sanctions - a situation we will make every attempt to avoid as sanctions hurt our teams.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Please go to the Carbon County School District #2 website for all Covid related information and updates. We are posting all information on this one website.
Empowering All Students to Succeed In A Changing World
The Encampment K-12 School is a K-12 public education institution located in Encampment, Wyoming. It is part of Carbon County School District #2.
The Town of Encampment and Town of Riverside are nestled in south-central Carbon County between the Sierra Madre and Snowy Range mountain ranges in the south central part of the state. Located forty miles south of Interstate 80 and 85 miles west of Laramie, the tiny town is home to 442 people. Grand Encampment, as it was originally known, served as an early day meeting place for Indians and trappers. Later tie cutters, miners and cattlemen came to the area. During the peak of the copper mining days the town boasted a smelter, the world's longest aerial tramway, and several thousand people. Smaller towns sprang up in several locations near the larger mines. When the copper mining boom ended just after the turn of the century, mines and towns were abandoned and the population of Encampment shrunk. Today Encampment is supported by the timber, ranching and recreation industries.
Carbon County is located in the south-central portion of Wyoming and is the third largest county in Wyoming. Its southern boundary is the Wyoming/Colorado border. The Continental Divide, which separates the eastern and western watersheds of North America, runs north and south through the county. The county is a study in contrasts - from snow-capped mountains and high plateaus in the south & north, to vast prairie lands in the east and the Red Desert basin in the west. Elevations range from 5,000 feet in the Red Desert to 12,006 feet in the Snowy Range.
