LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Football teams at two Glendale Unified high schools will be asked to hold “virtual practices” after an unspecified number of positive COVID tests.
A school district spokesperson told CBSLA’s Jeff Nguyen the Crescenta Valley High School frosh/soph and varsity football teams and the Hoover High School frosh/soph football team will “pivot to virtual practices for 10 days as a result of positive cases discovered during surveillance testing this week”.READ MORE: Father Of 3 Slain Children Appeared This Evening At The Growing Memorial Outside Reseda Apartment Complex Where The Crime Occurred

She works for the district but she’s not on the faculty at Crescenta Valley – where the district isn’t telling coaches or parents who tested positive.
