FOLSOM, Calif. (KTVU) - A group of students and parents is outraged over an elementary school in Folsom, banning the childhood game tag.
The principal at Gold Ridge Elementary sent a note to parents. It says that activities involving physical contact, such as tag and touch football are no longer allowed at the school yard.
The school district cites a series of student fights and injuries at different schools.
But some parents and children think the games are harmless.
The school district issued a statement which says the administrators have the authority to enact specific rules for recess, that deals with specific student behavior problems.
