GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Girls basketball and hockey is scheduled to start practice on Monday but Green Bay area schools -- Southwest, West, East and Preble -- will not be part of it.

In an email, the Green Bay Area Public School District said it is delaying sports until Brown County's two-week average rolling burden rate is less than 100 COVID-19 cases, per 100,000 residents.

Here is the full email:

The Green Bay Area Public School District Board of Education has established gating criteria for students to return to school in a Blended Model of Instruction. Students will return to a Blended Model of Instruction when the Brown County 2-week Average Rolling Burden Rate is less than 100 COVID-19 cases, per 100,000 residents. Activities will continue to be virtual and athletics will be delayed until students are able to return to the Blended Model of Instruction. Please refer to the Green Bay Area Public School District gating criteria dashboard for the daily Brown County 2-week Average Rolling Burden Rate.

Meanwhile, some other schools in Brown County -- Ashwaubenon, Bay Port, West De Pere and Notre Dame -- each has indicated it will move forward with winter sports.
