Jen Blandi started this petition to KSHSAA and

TELL KSHSAA TO LET PARENTS ATTEND WINTER ACTIVITIES!

On Tuesday, November 24, 2020 the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) implemented rules BANNING SPECTATORS (INCLUDING PARENTS) FROM MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL WINTER SPORTS & ACTIVITIES through January 28, 2021 - most of the winter sports season.

Sign this petition TODAY to tell KSHSAA to that spectators should be allowed! Ideally the two rules not allowing spectators should be eliminated in favor of the rule that allows attendance in accordance with local admission and attendance policies. But at the very least, 2 spectators per participant should be allowed.

SCHOOL ACTIVITIES SHOULD NOT BE HELD TO STRICTER STANDARDS vs. the exact same non-school activities that are conducted off-school premises. Nor should they be held to stricter standards than society as a whole.

  • Club and recreational facilities have continued to host activities without interruption with appropriately distanced spectators and other safety precautions under Kansas state current guidelines
  • Businesses and employers may operate safely and WITHOUT such strict limitations on adult employees and patrons in similar indoor environments as those facilities that would host school-sponsored winter sports and activities.
  • According to the KDHE, implementing the following practices will “protect…and keep your community healthy.” These should be implemented at winter school-sponsored activities rather than restricting parent attendance: Pre-screening for symptoms, Monitoring temperatures & symptoms regularly (prior to entrance of facility), Personal face coverings, Maintaining social distance of ~6 feet, and Disinfect & clean spaces

PLEASE ACT NOW BY SIGNING THIS PETITION WHICH WILL BE SENT TO KSHSAA and its membership. Games have already started so IMMEDIATE ACTION IS NECESSARY! 

MAKE YOUR VOICES HEARD! SHARE AND FORWARD! WITH ENOUGH SUPPORT PARENTS WILL BE ABLE TO ATTEND THEIR KIDS' WINTER SPORTS & ACTIVITIES!
