Rocvkyview School Board Vote to let children play sports

Brian Hunter started this petition to Rockyview School Division

The Superintendent of Rockyview Schools – Mr. Greg Luterbach – has unilaterally decided to ban all Rockview students from attending athletic tournaments for the remainder of the season, based on a recommendation from Alberta Health written in August.   Rockyview is the only school division in Alberta to make this decision that I was able to confirm. 

Every student playing sports right now is devastated, the huge amounts of time and effort they have spent years developing is wasted.  For most in high school this is the last real games they will ever play.  I have spoken with over 30 teachers and parents – none agree.  

I have sent a letter and affidavit from world renown child epidemiologist, Dr. Tracy Hoeg to Mr. Luterbach and the School Board.  Overall welfare of children should be considered.  If they are not playing they are in similar risk setting (homes, movies, recreation centers, parties and so forth).  There is no net Covid “win” but real harm is done to children.  The only “win” is that potential Covid transmission is not a liability for Mr. Luterbach.  He will hide behind this dated messaging from AHS.  Do not let him. 

I have set up an online petition here for this decision to go to a board vote immediately.  Additionally, I encourage you to  contact Mr. Luterbach directly with your frustration and demands.
