Dodge ball is out. Too aggressive.

Ropes courses are out. Too much liability.

And don’t even think about proposing a gun club at your child’s school these days.

But when the principal of Spokane’s Washington’s Adams Elementary School banned the playing of tag by students on the playground, at least one 3rd-grader had enough.

Kubby Boyd organized a petition and got his friends to sign it. He hopes it will change Principal Mary Weber’s mind.

Weber says the games were just getting too rough.

Several other schools in the same district say they have banned the hazardous game of tag, too. Those that still allow it have strict rules such as no pushing or shoving and playing only on soft, grassy surfaces.
