A public high school in Washington state wants to require some student-athletes to wear wrist monitors so they can better contact-trace amid the COVID-19 pandemic — riling some parents, who blasted the “tracking devices” on their children.

The Eatonville School District said in a letter Tuesday to parents that it received grant funding to support higher-risk athletic programs, including to pay for “athletic proximity monitors” to be worn by both staff and students on the field regardless of vaccination status.
“If a student or coach tests positive, we will have immediate information regarding athletes’ and coaches’ contact, so we can more tightly determine who might need to quarantine,” Eatonville School District Superintendent Gary Neal said.
