Allow Charlotte High Schools to complete their Swim Season

This petition made change with 5,988 supporters!

On January 14th, the Charlotte Mecklenburg School board made the difficult decision to cancel all extra-curricular activities due to concerns about the Covid infection rate in Mecklenburg county. Exceptions were made for sports that were already in their "playoffs", which enable both indoor volleyball and cross-country to complete their state level competitions. Swimming, which was scheduled to begin it's post-season on January 15th, was cancelled. We are asking that CMS high schools be allowed to complete their conference and regional swim meets and participate in the NCHSAA state meet. This would align CMS to the rest of the state of North Carolina, which has continued to support swimming and allow the completion of conference, regional and state NCHSAA meets.

Swimming has among the lowest Covid infection rates of ANY competitive sport and High School swimmers have among the highest GPA's of any student-athletes nationally. We believe that it is in the best interests of CMS, the county and the state to support our outstanding high school swimmers and to allow them to finish their season.
