Parents address School Board over hockey issue

Five parents addressed the Fargo School Board on Tuesday night, urging them to address the future of high school hockey in the school district.

They asked that school officials consider splitting varsity hockey into two teams next year, one for each of Fargo South High School and the new Davies High School.

Previously, Fargo Public Schools Activities Director Ed Lockwood said he will recommend South and Davies co-op next season before splitting the following year, citing low participation numbers.

The group of parents said they’d prefer students split into two teams like other sports to give students more opportunities.

They also asked the school board put this issue on the agenda of their next meeting on March 9.

The board had no comment in response to their concerns.
