I voted 'no' in the poll.Seems obvious to me that if the situation warrants 100% online school then you wouldn’t have in person sports or extracurricular activities.
I agree totally, but if it’s not safe to have in person class how is it safe to have in person extracurricular?I voted 'no' in the poll.
I do think DMPS has an argument with how their kids and community benefit from sports & extracurriculars. I don't envy them as they navigate this.
Not really.It’s so easy to argue either side of the issue.
I'm torn on that a little.I assume everyone feels the same way about college sports if college classes went 100% virtual.
That's where I'd imagine the other side of the argument comes into play.I assume everyone feels the same way about college sports if college classes went 100% virtual.
That's been the deal the whole time. And yeah, it's a little curious.Does anyone know if the IGHSAU, IHSAA, and DOE are working remotely, or actually working in their offices? I would find it rather ironic if these groups were all working remotely to control the spread, yet are telling schools that you cannot participate in sports if you going virtual to do the same thing as we are doing.
High school baseball and softball players didn't stay in bubbles. They went wherever they wanted. A lot of them probably worked some hours in Hyvees all over Iowa.That's where I'd imagine the other side of the argument comes into play.
Schools going to online might actually help college football in that it leads to less interactions (potentially) and keeps a 'bubble' for the teams.
Same with high school sports. Less chance for being around other kids, stay in a form of 'bubble' to just play their sport, the same way baseball and softball did in the summer.
