On Tuesday, the University Interscholastic League (UIL) posted a schedule of various program participation start dates for local sports.

Alice Independent School District (AISD) addressed the new UIL schedule by following the Jim Well County’s recent order voted on in court Monday, suspending all on-campus instruction until October, 9.

Although, UIL permits 4A schools (Alice High) to begin practices on August 3, 2020; AHS will not be starting on August 3rd due to the continued rise of COVID-19 cases in our local area, and in accordance with the order issued by Jim Wells County on July 20, 2020 that goes through October 9, 2020.

AISD will continue to monitor the local, regional and state COVID-19 updates, as well as any changes that may be made pertaining to extracurricular activities by TEA and UIL.
