Shorty after Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced schools would be closed through April 3rd, UIL announced they are extending the activity suspension through May 4th, 2020. Last week, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, UIL suspended activity through March 29th. Originally this only applied to games. UIL amended the memo to include rehearsals, practice and workouts. Today’s decision includes the same mandates with games, workouts, etc.
On their Twitter page, UIL tweeted this:
“We are working diligently on contingency plans to conduct state championships in each of the activities that have been suspended. While the immediate future is unclear, we are committed to providing these much-desired activities to all Texas students and will prepare for all possible outcomes, including extended school closures.” - UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt.
