It's a miracle I survived childhood. Banning dodge ball and now tag?!?!?! Concussions from playing tag? Give me a break.:rolleyes:
An elementary school in Nashua, N.H., is reminding parents and students that playing "tag" violates the school's longtime "no contact" rule for recess games.
Charlotte Avenue Elementary School Principal Patricia Beaulieu posted a letter on the school's website last week informing parents of the school's safety policies. She says while "tag" may seem innocent enough, it has been banned in many schools because of injuries.
She told the Telegraph of Nashua that several concussions, a broken wrist and other injuries prompted her to post the letter, and she emphasized that while she wants children to run, jump and play, it has to be in a safe way.
