Game on: Tahoe Truckee schools changes course, extracurricular activities resume

North Tahoe's Alex Bumann and the Lakers snowboard team can resume practice and competitions after the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District reversed course on suspending extracurricular activities.

A week after being sidelined due to a spike in positive COVID-19 cases, students at Tahoe Truckee Unified School District will be allowed to resume extracurricular activities.

The district suspended extracurricular activities for the remainder of the month on Jan. 5, but that all changed following a student protest on Friday in Truckee, an outpouring of support from the community, and a meeting between school officials, athletic directors and a group of student leaders.
