Students going outside for recess at Weber Middle School in Port Washington, New York are dealing with a few changes this school year.
Because of safety concerns, some activities and equipment have been banned – including footballs, soccer balls, baseball, lacrosse balls – even Nerf balls. Games of tag and cartwheels are also outlawed. The change, according to the school, is an effort to curb playground injuries, particularly concussions.
But some of the students say the ban just isn’t fair and students should be allowed to play, and be physical, in pretty much any way they’d like when they have a break from classes.
