Schofield releases statement on GHSA decision about beginning workouts

By AccessWDUN Staff

GAINESVILLE — Hall County Superintendent Will Schofield says the system's student-athletes will not be required to return to workouts.

Schofield released a video statement on Friday in response to the Georgia High School Association's decision to allow athletes to return to workouts on June 8 with restrictions.

“If you’re uncomfortable with that, we totally understand," he said. "There will be no hard feelings, but we are going to work very hard to legally create these opportunities outside and in our large gyms. I applaud this effort and step forward. We are moving toward normalcy in the Hall County school district.”

To watch the full statement, press play.
