On Tuesday, November 24th, Lubbock-Cooper ISD informed parents of new limits on attendance to extracurricular activities.

As COVID-19 numbers in the Lubbock region continue to increase, Lubbock-Cooper ISD made the aforementioned decision in response. The announcement says that "with the desire to do our part to keep our students and families as safe as possible, we are implementing new safety requirements for indoor extracurricular activities."

KAMC News reports that attendees of all basketball games, concerts, plays, recitals and other extracurricular activities will be limited to immediate family members only. Coaches and sponsors will be working with students to ensure that a immediate family members are listed.

Family members outside of the immediate household will not be allowed to attend.

For large events like band and choir concerts, tickets will be limited to a certain number per student based on building capacity.

Face coverings will also be required at all times while attending the events for those ages 10 and up.

Lubbock-Cooper ISD went on to say in the announcement:

We realize these limitations are not popular decisions, but we do ask for patience and understanding during this time in order to lessen the impact of COVID on our population. Thank you for partnering with us as we strive to provide the safest and best possible experiences for our students.
