Canceled: FIRST LEGO® League Explore Heartland Regional Showcase
March 19 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
As COVID-19 cases have been trending downward and many of our KC metro communities are no longer considered to be at high risk for COVID transmission per CDC data, KC FIRST FRC Regionals are now mask-optional.
If your community is still considered to be at high risk or your school district still has a mask mandate inlace, we strongly encourage your team to wear masks.
The following protocols will remain in place:
- Suspending the hi-five line for awards and handshakes at finals in favor of alternate ways to celebrate our teams.
- Discontinuing the sharing of safety glasses during the event. Please have your teams and guests bring their own if they have them. Otherwise, safety glasses will be provided at the event.
- Communicating with our volunteers regarding steps we can all take at competitions to promote good hygiene practices.
- Placing hand sanitizer at various locations throughout our events.
- Posting signage at events to promote hand washing.
