The parental backlash was fierce, but it appears that it pushed school officials into defensive mode to justify their outrageous decisions to put contact tracing ankle bracelets on students, treating them like criminals and stripping their constitutional rights. ⁃ TN Editor

Washington state public high school has been condemned for forcing student athletes to wear ankle bracelets to help with COVID track and tracing efforts.

Eatonville High School bought the monitors, made by a company called Triax, for both coaches and students in high-contact and moderate-contact sports.

Students who play volleyball, basketball, football and soccer are required by the school to wear the device.

The ‘TraceTag’ has visual and audible sensors that alert students when they are too close to each other, while also collecting contact-trace data later used to identify which students have had contact with other players who have tested positive for COVID-19.

That means it could be used to alert a student if they’d been in close contact with someone who has the virus.

According to the manufacturer’s website, the device can be attached to a hat or a helmet or be worn in the body.

Both vaccinated and unvaccinated students at Eatonville are currently required to wear the devices, but only unvaccinated students are required to quarantine for 14 days in case of a positive case of COVID-19 detected in the contact-trace data.

The device, meant to collect contact-trace data in case of COVID-19 infections, was likened to the ankle monitors used by individuals under house arrest.

But the move sparked widespread anger among parents after it was reported online, with many outraged at the similarity to devices used to track criminals on bail or probation.

The black TraceTag – pictured on this information sheet – was affixed to some student athletes’ ankles for COVID test and tracing purposes, sparking fury among parents.

Eatonville High School in Washington State infuriated parents by making student athletes wear tracking devices

‘Over my dead body, My kids would not participate and very well may take them out of school and do online schooling if I had kids in that school.

‘Ankle monitors are for criminals not children,’ commented Holly Laubsch on a Facebook post.

The measure has been deemed extreme and invasive, as vaccine and mask mandates have prompted a heated debate in states across the US, and fears of government overreach grow among parents.

Crazy. These parents have got to be crazy to keep their issue in this school… Still waiting on the PROOF that any of these “distancing’ measures are about health. You’ve got to be insane if you think this will go away. This will be used for THOUGHT CRIME persecution and all manner of totalitarian control. Note how the technocrats have the solution: permanent tracking devices like cattle!

Don’t play then, or maybe start your own private sports club.

NO, not the answer. Answer: GET RID OF THE FASCISTS.

This is SICK

Oh yeah, that’s exactly what I would want for my child–experience being treated as a health criminal. They were given ‘free money’ for new toys and they choose to have your child experience being a prisoner while in school. I can hear it now. “It’s for their own good, their own safety, their own protection! We are afraid!! SAVE US covid lie narrative!” GOD. What a bunch of losers and a load of stinky crap. How stupid are you so-called ‘educators’? Well, let’s see. No amount of wordsmithing (yes, WA State educators that’s a real word that you can use… Read more »

The dumbest kids in college go into education.

Elle

I cannot disagree, having had firsthand experience. Even colleges–high IQ scores for many but little intelligence or common sense.

Elle

Oh! And I didn’t mention the obvious. How much grant money did the school receive and where did the rest of it go? Mmmmm? If I were a parent I’d find out about that immediately–all of it. Accountability folks. That’s where the rubber meets the road. And, if I had to bet I’d bet that it’s in someone’s pocket. After all, the letter stated they used “a portion” for criminal tracking devices because they didn’t want to perform continuous, repetitive testing. Then STOP! There’s absolutely no need. At 99.999% infection survival rate for covid among children testing is without merit.… Read more »

Worn in the body? Where? How will it be inserted.

Over the dead cold bodies of school board members and school administrators!

Parents should fall out to the next school board meeting and insert these devices into all school board members and school administrators.

This is overreach by the government. I would remove my children from school.

It’s no longer a surprise to see parents acceding to school boards. These authoritarians have owned our children for 200 years. Horace Mann advocated Unitarianism and believed in phrenology. Not much has changed by now. Today, parents are still happy to get rid of their children and have them educated in Marxism. The biggest change may be that today’s parents seem to have more excuses for abdicating their parental responsibilities. They’ll whine and fuss a little, but ultimately will cave. Putting their child’s best interest ahead of their own selfish whims just never seems to occur to them.

The amount of insane idiocy we see around us almost leads one to believe the “lizards” theory — they’re not human. They’ve been possessed, like the Stepford Wives. Well, just wave and crack them little insincere smiles while walking by quickly. That, I think, is the way to handle them.

Really SIMPLE solution…….EVERYONE take their kids OUT of these SKOOLS (<< spelled on purpose)!!
HOME SCHOOL! There should be NO EXCUSES! THEN…….STOP PAYING your TAXES! Guess what will happen then? One of two things……either these PUBLIC SERVANTS (and they NEED to be REMINDED of THIS!!) will 'cave'; OR……these SKOOLS will CLOSE. And that is NOT a bad thing! Time to form small groups, pull together, and HOME SCHOOL. No REAL/ACTUAL Parent should have their kid(s) in an Indoctrination Prison Camp (aka SKOOL)!
