YUHSD to Suspend Extracurricular Activities Indefinitely
Yuma Union High School District officials announced they will suspend all extracurricular activities until further notice, beginning Friday.
While there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Yuma County, Yuma Union district officials said they are taking this step “with an abundance of caution.”
District officials said personnel will continue to monitor and assess the situation with decisions being made in the best interest of families, staff members and the community.
Classes will proceed as regularly scheduled with food service and transportation fully operational. The suspension of after-school events includes all activities, athletics, performances, field trips, student travel and staff professional development as well as facilities rentals and after-school community use of facilities.
In a released statement, officials said “while it is heartbreaking to potentially disappoint and disrupt the high school experience for our students, it is an essential decision.”
