WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The superintendent of Valley Center Schools says Valley Center High School will be closed Friday, Oct. 30. The football game against Bishop Carroll is canceled.

Dr. Cory Gibson posted a message on the district’s Facebook page saying there is a spike in the number of staff, students and families directly impacted by the COVID-19 virus.

High school students will follow the remote learning day schedule Friday.

A later post on the district’s Facebook page mentions the cancellation of the game against Bishop Carroll on Friday. The post says that there have been at least seven football team members and coaches who have tested positive for the coronavirus. Other team members are being tested because they have symptoms.

On Thursday afternoon, Bishop Carroll High School’s athletic director Tyler Frazier tweeted, “Unfortunately due to COVID-related concerns at Valley Center, tomorrow night’s home football game has been cancelled.  We look forward to playing the winner of Newton and Hutchinson next week.”
