Spring break trip rules could be made stricter for Fayette County schools

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The Fayette County School Board met Monday, and during the meeting, Lafayette High School's baseball team voiced some concerns about the school district possibly changing spring break trip policies.

Players and coaches said they heard new rules could be put into place to possibly restrict trips, like the one they take to Florida every year for a baseball tournament.

Superintendent Tom Shelton weighed in, saying spring break trips will not be canceled, but the rules could be made stricter.

"I understand they're looking at some additional rules and regulations and guidelines. We'll abide anything that's reasonable. We don't want to break anybody's policy, violate anybody's rules. We just simply want to be able to take our kids or allow our kids to go to Florida for spring break and play baseball," said Ron Compton, with Lafayette High School's Baseball Booster Club.

This discussion follows an incident involving Dunbar High School baseball player Travis Gaines, who is now paralyzed after an accident during the team's spring break trip last year.
