Why is there a lock on the fields? Does closing the fields really help stop COVID? These are all questions that popped up into my head when I was going for a stroll last week on Severn School’s campus. I looked over and saw a closed lock on Severn’s athletic fields. Does closing the athletic fields really help, though? If you restrict the students from releasing their energy and keep them from exercising, does it cause more problems? I think yes. If you don’t let kids exercise and move their bodies more than just from class to class, how can you expect them to perform at their best in the classroom?
