Message from Burris Athletic Director

Friday, March 13, 2020

Dear Parents,

In keeping with Ball State guidance regarding response to COVID-19, all athletic events, including practices and awards ceremonies for winter and spring sports are cancelled. As a unit in Teachers College, this decision aligns with that made by Ball State University in compliance with the Mid-American Conference’s recent directive. We have the same responsibility for and commitment to assuring the safety and well-being of all student athletes at University Schools, as we do for Ball State University.

We will continue to monitor developments and as soon as there’s a possible change, we will be in touch. While to date, there has not been a single identified and confirmed case of COVID-19 on the Ball State campus, Burris, the Indiana Academy, and Muncie community, we want to be cautious. I appreciate your understanding. Please feel free to contact me with your questions.


Mr. Chad Wlodarek
Athletic Director
Burris Laboratory School & the Indiana Academy
