REDDING, Calif. - Many students look forward to big school activities like prom and graduation.
Action News Now spoke to several students in Redding who says, they don’t want to be at home. They want to be at school with their friends and learning in a classroom.
School events like prom, graduation and spring plays are put on hold till further notice. Anderson Union High School District Superintendent Victor Hopper says while this is disappointing, the safety of students and staff come first.

The reality is that we have a pandemic on our hands and we have to do our part to lower that curve.”
