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.

“I feel the pain, as a father of a senior this year who was looking forward to her prom and graduation,” said Hopper. “

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

School Districts in Shasta County are prepping to do everything online or with written packets for the rest of the semester once spring break ends.

The Shasta County Office of Education says that face-to-face teaching might not happen for the rest of the year.
