Winter Sports-- Action needed
As an athlete and the parent of athletes, I know first hand how important the sports season is to our teens. I fear what will happen if the winter season is canceled. Our teens are already at the brink and many haven't been in a classroom for over 9 months. Parents and coaches, this is a good segment on WAVY to watch.
VBCPS is planning to cancel the winter sports season, a final decision will be made tomorrow.
It is my viewpoint that our youth athletes are safer in school and safer playing their sports. Physicians advising our Board told us that it is causing harm keeping our kids out of school. I have read about teens around the country committing suicide after their sports seasons were canceled.
If you believe our youth should still have a winter sports season (even if you don't have a HS athlete), please email (ASAP) the
VB School Board: firstname.lastname@example.org
Superintendent Aaron Spence: email@example.com
Chief Schools Officer Donald Robertson: firstname.lastname@example.org
MOST IMPORTANT: PLEASE HAVE YOUR ATHLETE SEND AN EMAIL!!!

For months the children of Virginia Beach have not been able to attend school. This is a travesty. They are attending school in other states and those states are not having a higher number of Covid infections. As a resident of Virginia Beach I think it is in the best interest of the children to return them to school and allow them to participate in sports. If you don’t intend to do that right now then I want a refund on my real estate taxes that goes towards the school system.

As the parent and grandparent of student athletes, they need to PLAY! These athletes need to see that their patience and hard work has a crescendo. You may be able to have some sort of success with virtual learning but physical activity and competition just cannot be accomplished over the internet!
