On Friday, the Henry County School System announced the suspension of all athletic and extracurricular activities scheduled for Aug. 1-9.

Athletic directors Mike Poteete and Renae Lassiter strongly encourage student athletes and students involved in other extracurricular activities to use this time to socially distance and to make healthy choices prior to returning to practice and activities.

“We will continue to review community spread, guidance from TSSAA, consultation with local healthcare providers, and other factors to determine a return date for our students,” the school system said in a prepared statement.

Information about athletics and extracurricular activities after Aug. 9 will be shared as it becomes available, the statement said.
