Resume school sports for Students in Bonnyville & Cold Lake
Currently, the Northern Lights Public School and the Lakeland Catholic School Division have made the decision to temporarily cancel all basketball games/ tournaments for High School Students.
At the middle school level students are only allowed to practice. Games were not scheduled at all for this age group at the start of the basketball season, and it appears that games are not going to be considered for the middle school kids at all.
As a parent of children in both school divisions, I am very disappointed in the decision. ALL other sports outside of school (hockey, gymnastics, cheerleading, swimming, etc.) are still running at full capacity including spectators. So athletes who have chosen school sports are the only ones missing out and feeling punished. St.Paul school division has not canceled league play. Why has the Lakeland? School sports in the Lakeland even continued throughout the delta wave, why are the games being canceled now?
Please sign this petition to let the Lakeland
School Divisions know how important it is to our kids to resume school
basketball games/tournaments out of fairness: most importantly for
their developmental and mental health.
