Teen will stay on basketball team
NORTHVILLE -- Social media was flooded on Wednesday with talk of a local basketball player.
Tim Monette, from the Northville School District has been diagnosed with lymphoma. Many students and community members took to Facebook and Twitter to complain that the principal allegedly removed Monette from the team because he has been missing school for health reasons, despite receiving tutoring at home.
However, the school released a statement on Thursday saying Monette would not be removed:
"After consulting the school's attorney first thing this morning, it was decided that the home tutoring he is receiving constitutes the requisite attendance and as long as he has a doctor's clearance for each game, he may be eligible to play."
