TIMPSON ISD SUPERINTENDENT RESPONDS ON TOPIC OF POTENTIAL COVID-19 VIOLATIONS FROM UIL

September 2508:40 AM
 

It has come to my attention that there are concerns about stadium procedures and protocols for visitors to our events at Timpson ISD. We published our stadium guidelines and athletic event procedures on our website many weeks ago.  We have tried to communicate the guidelines and enforce them as much as possible. However, our country is currently in a struggle for power and that struggle in my opinion has made its way to school stadiums and school houses across the nation.  I understand that some people believe the Coronavirus poses a great threat to our society while others do not believe it is real. So whether you believe COVID is real or not, the letter I received from UIL yesterday about potential allegations of violations of COVID-19 protocol at TISD “is real.” view article  arw
