“As school resumes, extracurricular student activities will also be limited to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Substantially all such activities for which proper social distancing and other safety measures cannot be utilized, such as athletics and band, will be suspended during the initial nine week phase of reopening. School Administrators are exploring ways to use technology to make as many extracurricular activities available as possible.”
