Allow D219 Athletes to Train
The Illinois High School Association (IHSA) which governs High School Athletics is allowing 20 contact days for athletes (effective now) through the end of October. Most schools with in our conference and the state are allowing their athletes to participate. D219 has not explained why, when or if our athletes will be allowed to participate as well D219.
D219 athletes are being inequitably disadvantaged by not being allowed to train like athletes at other schools in our conference and many families cannot afford expensive club programs which are not subject to the same restrictions.
DEMAND the District allow our kids the same opportunities as their peers!!!
