Grand Rapids school bans tag for kindergartners

New rule is part of 'No Tag, No Chasing' policy


GRAND RAPIDS, MI – "Tag, you're it!"

Under a new policy, New Gronigen kindergarten kids are no longer allowed to play the classic children's game "tag" - as apart of their new "No Tag, No Chasing" policy.

The Grand Rapids based school sent a letter home to parents that announced the ban on tag and other chase-oriented games. The letter described children, "running in packs, pushing, knocking other children over, and making the game dangerous."

The consequences of playing these games would be immediate removal from play, a note home to parents, and missing the next two recess periods.
