AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — After Governor Abbots most recent executive order
the Texas UIL said it was working on allowing schools to begin summer activities soon.

Governor Abbott talked with us today about what his recent order allowing for summer sporting camps to re-open starting May 31 could mean for Texas UIL high school activities.
Governor Abbott said, “They were going through their evaluation phases about what they will, and may not be able to get done right now. I would expect an update from the UIL later this week or early next week about what they are planning on allowing to be done.”
