Rutherford County school reopens after ‘tough days’

On Monday, Rutherford County School District reopened its high school football team after a week of “tough” days that included “high school games being played and the closure of campus facilities,” according to Superintendent Mike Mancini.

Mancini said the district “has a long history of working with parents to make sure our students are well-prepared for life on campus.”

In addition to playing games on campus, students were allowed to play in school-sponsored events at local restaurants, according to Mancinis.

In addition, the district hosted a baseball game with the University of South Florida.

“There was not a lot of physical activity on campus,” he said.

“We’re talking about a day of football.”

On Sunday, Mancis plans to announce a new schedule for the upcoming school year, and he hopes to bring the season to a close with a bowl game.
