Asia Bryant started this petition to Bedford Board of Education

 The students of Bedford High School were deeply devastated when news broke out that their seasons would be put on hold while learning virtually.  This petition is a request that the Bedford administration reconsiders their decision and resumes all sports. 

     For many kids, their teammates become like siblings, and their coaches are most often their mentors and biggest fans. In some cases sports provide the only structure and stable environment that kids can depend on day in and day out. 

     Apart from student benefits, sports and extracurriculars can have a benefit on the school district as well. Money that is made from admission prices during sporting events can get money flowing throughout the school district. Also, money could be put towards uniforms so it doesn’t have to come from parents pockets directly. This money can also go towards different safety precautions such as ; sanitation stations, helmets with face shielding, providing water bottles to prevent players from sharing, providing thermometers for temperature check and equipment cleaning. 

Please do not take sports away from kids! Kids need social interaction, they need to be apart of something bigger than themselves. For the kids who want to play, they should be able to play and have their parents sign a waiver, if needed. There are lots of options please sign and encourage the BCSD to find a way to allow students to play sports.
