“The Health Department has also recommended that we close down our football program as well as our band and choir for the start of the school year.”

Northridge noted in the post that Public Health said they would support any district who decided to continue to offer an at-school physical distance option.

“We are prayerfully and cautiously weighing our options in light of these new recommendations.”
