A School In Michigan Has Banned Kids From Playing Tag At Recess
An elementary school in Michigan has implemented a “no tag” rule. Due to kids getting hurt while playing tag the school has made it a rule for no more tag or chasing at recess. Kids were running in packs, pushing, knocking other children over, and making the game dangerous.
Kids will be punished with removal from play, a note home to parents and missing two recess periods.
Shaylee loves to play tag at school. She talks about how the big tire is the base and I can hear how much she enjoys playing tag with her friends.
She would be upset if they implemented a “no tag” rule, but I’m sure she would adjust.
Do you think the “no tag” rule is a good idea?
