When East Aurora School District is talked about, both in and outside of our community, it is often in the context of negativity or the start of an insult. Student athletes have been working hard to prove who East is - both to our own community and to everyone who knows of our schools. We were finally making strides towards changing the culture of sports within our schools and we had the momentum needed to bring home more victories until COVID hit. While we understand that no one is to blame for the virus, we know that the district is further complicating our current situation as student-athletes by denying us the same opportunities that every other school in the area now has.


Participating in sports has become so much more to us than just winning games - being a part of athletics has helped us form a family.  We are teammates and a family regardless of what is happening around us, but we are being forced out of an opportunity to participate in the same level of competition as the surrounding areas since D131 has decided to not allow us to participate in our respective sports such as volleyball, football, basketball, and wrestling. All of the other schools in Aurora have been cleared and given the green light to begin practice while we are being robbed of this same experience. 


The state has recently announced that Aurora hasmoved on to Phase 4 and yet that announcement has not changed the decision of the D131 board. We are listening and paying attention to the inequities the district continues to subject us to and we are not planning to stand around and just accept this unfair decision. We are all frustrated and we are hoping we can count on your support.
