While students continue to practice social distancing and campus won't fully reopen until October 5th, Summerville High in Tuolumne, California received some bovine visitors. In an article filled with puns, the author describes the situation and the corralling of the cows to the baseball field where they could be more easily retrieved and cool themselves with the sprinkler system while they waited. While the students are away, the cows will play!
