We are writing this letter on behalf of the parents of the High school girls basketball program. We are delighted the girls are back playing high school basketball in a competitive environment & have an opportunity to defend the Hockomock-league title. In a year of unprecedented change, this is so important for the girls & gives us all a sense of normalcy in an unprecedented time. However, we are very disappointed our player’s parents are not allowed to attend home games.

We understand through various emails and communications this decision was made in the best interest of the girls and is sanctioned by the Foxboro school Administration, Health and Athletic depts. While we respect any decision that the town makes in the best interest of our children, we take exception with this more stringent practice. We understand this isn’t a State, MIAA or Hockomock requirement, but rather a Foxboro decision and furthermore a decision at the high school level only.

We fully appreciate the value in social distancing and adherence to masks and agree the safety of our players comes first. However, when we see other towns not adhering to the same guidelines as Foxboro, or even different practices within Foxboro’s youth level (Metro-West) it really puts the high school position in question. Additionally, we are currently allowing college interns at these games ahead of parents. This seems very inconsistent with the guidelines that were established.

We would urge you to reconsider this position for the balance of the season and simply make Foxboro high school’s practice consistent with the greater MIAA, Hockomock League, and local Foxboro youth levels. Without consistency a local deviation from the norm loses its primary value. Our request is simple…Abide by the same requirements every other school in the Hock and junior level within Foxboro is currently following. Allow parents into the games ahead of college interns.

If we didn’t have such passion to watch our Lady hoopsters compete, we wouldn’t bring this to your attention.  We deeply value watching our girls build great team comrade & mature into young adults that we can all be proud. This simply can’t be achieved via live streaming. At minimum, we request an open forum to discuss this policy before the season is over and we have missed this experience with our girls.
