Protest to be held outside district office at 4 p.m.

Student-athletes from Porterville Unified School District are planning a protest of the district’s decision to cancel the football, water polo and volleyball seasons today at 4 p.m. in front of the district office.

“We just want to do this to show that it does mean a lot to us to the point that we’ll go out and be vocal about it, to show what it actually means (to us),” said Andrew Contreras, a senior football player from Porterville High. “Cause I feel like we’ve already gotten so much taken away from us, especially the seniors of the 2021 class, so I know it would be so much harder for us to watch all of our schoolmates continue with their sports, and see all the other schools continue with football and know that we have to sit out.”

Contreras is working on getting football players, students, and parents from PUSD’s four affected high schools -- Porterville, Monache, Strathmore, and Granite Hills -- out at the protest.
