“These are incredibly important moments in the lives of our children. When the multibillion-dollar sports leagues with multimillion-dollar athletes are struggling to protect their players, it is obvious there won’t be enough protection for kids on our schools’ playing fields.

This virus is unrelenting, and it spreads so easily that no amount of restrictions seems to keep it off the playing field.”
