Small town football gets cancelled!

The Hondo Independent School District announced Monday that all of the district’s football games scheduled for this week are canceled.
The message on Twitter said the decision was made “out of an abundance of caution and for the safety of all involved.”


An even smaller town shuts down schools, but, not Football!
[www.mysanantonio.com]
LISD stated it would remain closed through September 7 due to "personnel challenges brought on by COVID-19. The students will not be having remote instruction," it added.
The district does not enforce face masks but does encourage them, according to COVID-19 policy on its website.
The district is, however, allowing all extracurricular activities to proceed if there are adequate personnel to manage the program. It includes competitions and practices.

Maybe, just maybe, this will convince some to reassess their stance on COVID.

They canceled because the coach and all of the senior players were out with COVID.

...And parents are still protesting the move.
