Mt. Blue High School will not be participating in fall sports this year.

The RSU 9 School Board voted, this week, to approve a plan that would keep Mt. Blue athletes from taking part in competitive sports with other schools. WABI-TV reports school officials were concerned about being able to keep the athletes safe, as they interacted with students from other districts. Another factor in the decision was a lack of school bus drivers, to shuttle the students to the games.

High School officials now plan to work on some intramural games, so athletes can play safely.
