Letters: All sports can wait for high school students

Dysart Unified School District students will wisely not be in the classroom until mid-October.

However, the Arizona Interscholastic Association wants to open practices before returning. They have stated that health and safety is important, but is it really?

The NFL Players Association announced 56 players have tested positive for coronavirus since training camps opened last week. Do we really want to expose our kids to the virus so that they can be on sports teams, or is AIA self-delusional?

We must protect our young people. As a retired high school teacher, I can say that we can get along just fine without sports until this situation betters itself.
