Statement regarding BOE’s high-risk sports decision

At last night’s (Feb. 8) Board of Education meeting, a High Risk Sports Preparedness Plan was presented to QUFSD Board of Education members. At the meeting, the Board voted 5-4 to not move forward with high-risk winter sports at this time. I respect the board’s decision and their consideration on this matter.

This morning, our high school students organized a walkout and protested this decision peacefully. At QUFSD, we support our students who take action and exercise their rights to protest peacefully. I would like to thank all of the individuals for being respectful today while expressing their opinions.
