Keeping Schools Safe

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) – Science Hill High School has announced that sporting events will only allow limited attendance since the school has switched to remote learning.

According to Science Hill, only immediate family members will be allowed to attend home varsity sporting events.

“We apologize for this inconvenience, but this will provide our athletes with the opportunity to play,” the school said in a release.

The release says for the basketball games on Thursday, November 19 and Saturday, November 21, immediate family members of athletes will be allowed to attend.

Family members of players, dance team members and cheerleaders may attend the games.

Each athlete will be allowed four tickets to purchase for family members.
