Allen ISD Tennis Courts Reopen; Athletic Fields & Playgrounds Closed
UPDATE: As outlined by Gov. Abbott, individuals may begin engaging in outdoor sports that do not include contact with other individuals. Due to this ease in restriction, Allen ISD will reopen its tennis courts on Friday, May 1, for community use. AISD playfields and playgrounds will remain closed at this time.
Allen ISD has closed district playgrounds and athletic spaces in an effort to reduce the spread of infection from the Coronavirus. The public is encouraged not to congregate in large groups at open playfields on Allen ISD or City of Allen property. Locked facilities are closed to the public.
“We are unable to properly sanitize these large outdoor spaces and feel that it is in the best interest of public safety to close them for now,” said Daniel Pitcock, assistant superintendent for operations.
The school district will notify the community when other facilities are reopened.
