The extended closure impacts all extra and co-curricular activities including athletic competitions, practices, and after school programs and events.
The School Districts say they understand this is an uncertain time, and the goal is to assist the community in slowing the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. According to health officials, the practice of social distancing can slow the transmission of the virus.
