Every school stresses safety on school grounds but Weber Middle School in Port Washington, New York has taken things to a new level by banning the use of most balls and games of tag during recess.

As CNN has reported, the school is taking precautions to help protect students from injury or bullying during regularly scheduled recess periods.

No longer allowed at the Weber Middle School in Port Washington, New York: footballs, baseballs, soccer balls, lacrosse balls and any other hardballs that could injure a child. Also off limits: rough games of tag and cartwheels unless an adult supervisor is on hand.

Reaction to the new rules has been mixed. Some parents believe this is going too far and robbing kids of their opportunity to have fun between classes while others say that with the increase of injury related lawsuits schools have to be extra protective of their students. The fun hasn’t completely been taken out of recess.

Soft nerf balls will be provided during recess, and kids can play with hardballs during gym and intramural athletics.
