Athletics Suspended

Chancellor Mitchell M. Lundy, Jr. of Grenada issued today a temporary restraining order that prohibits outside sports-related activities in DeSoto, Tate, Panola, Grenada, Yalobusha and Montgomery counties.
    The order holds from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day until further notice.
    Water Valley High – presumably with every other school in the six county area – received the order via fax Thursday morning.
    “We’re making arrangements to practice indoors, until the order is lifted,” said Principle Glenn Kitchens.
    Kitchens added that the school will continue to have outside recess during the regular school day, but that band practice will also be inside.
    The restraining order’s language cited National Weather Bureau’s heat advisory and the court’s responsibility as “guardian custodian and caretaker of all minors in this State.”
