The students that are playing sports were asked for $20 for team uniforms, by the coaching staff. They were told the uniform would be $10 for jerseys and $10 for shorts or pants, depending on the sport. They only received a jersey. This is not the first time it has happened. Who is lying, my kid or the coaching staff? — Played out, Heber
It’s unfortunate to hear that the above-mentioned problem may have occurred prior to the Probe writer sending us this note. Considering the state of financial affairs many folks may find themselves in, $10 is no insignificant figure that can easily be shrugged off. More importantly, the thought that either your child or a public school official may not be dealing on the level is also rather disquieting.
Paying the $20 for the jersey allows the student to take it home after the games are over, while those who opt to simply borrow one for the duration of the sports activities must return it at season’s end, Trujillo said. In the past, school officials have also worked with students who wanted to pay for the jersey in installments. The majority of students often choose to pay for the jersey, Trujillo said.
While we can’t say what exactly transpired between parent, child and school officials in this instance, we hope this clears up any concerns in the future.
