Rationale: It is very frustrating that New York State has prioritized athletics over academics and the reopening of our schools; however, if the Governor is going to provide opportunity, we want to take advantage of it for the benefit of our students. We recognize that there is an incredible amount of hypocrisy and absence of logic in the “rule book” that has been dictated to schools. For example, the Governor’s regulations state that it is okay to play sports, but it’s not okay to have our students closer than 12-feet apart during regular PE class. Kids can play football, but they can’t sit closer than 6-feet apart during a social studies class. Regardless of the double standard, approving athletics will provide our students with something they desperately need right now… hope. So much has been taken away from our students this year, they need to have this opportunity.
