Hart School District Issues Athletics Update

“We are very pleased that many of our student-athletes, who have been conditioning only for some time, will have the opportunity to practice and compete in their respective sports,” said Dr. Michael Vierra, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources at the Hart District. “We are also very thankful to all the coaches, trainers, administrators, and other athletic staff who have put a program together so quickly for our students after the recent announcements from the California and Los Angeles Departments of Public Health. We also would like to thank our great partners at Henry Mayo who once again have stepped up to support our students and staff by working with us to put together a COVID-19 testing program that is currently required for football.”
