Senior-Staff Tag Week

Believe the hype!


The 2019 senior class along with the faculty and staff at Homestead are playing a friendly (maybe you could use a different adjective) game of tag throughout the week of Monday, May 20 -Friday, May 24. Principal Bowers has selected one person to be the the single green bracelet (who is “it”). All participants will be gifted with two sets of bracelets, red and green, while playing. Ironically, red means your are safe and green means you have been tagged. The person who lasts the week untagged will receive an “I survived Homestead tag week” T-shirt and unlimited pride and trash talking rights along with it



Rules for tag week:


  1. At the start of the game, you will be issued two rubber bracelets: one green and one red. Both bracelets must be brought to school every day of the week until the red bracelet is no longer needed.
  2. When you start the game you must wear your red bracelet. It tells everyone that you are playing the game and that you have not been tagged. The bracelet must be worn on the wrist and only can be partially covered.
  3. The person that starts the game as “it” will wear the green bracelet.
  4. When the person who is “it” tags anyone wearing a red bracelet, that person must throw away the red bracelet and replace it with their green one. That person is now infected by principal Bowers’ unknown evil apprentice and can start tagging other people. Once you are infected, you cannot be “freed.” You are “it” for the rest of the game.
  5. Whenever someone is tagged, that person must call out (in a defeated and obnoxious manner), “I’ve been tagged!” so everyone else in the area knows to watch out.
  6. The game is in effect from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day.
  7. The game can be played before school, during passing periods, at lunch and after school. The game is never in effect during class time.
  8. Any adult can prohibit you from playing the game in their room or learning space, even before class starts.
  9. There are a few ways you can avoid being tagged: When you are seated in the cafeteria during lunch, you are safe. When you are seated in a classroom, you are safe. When you are locked arm-in-arm with two other people wearing red bracelets, you are safe.

Remember to make allies and play strategically. But most importantly, be safe and responsible. Any teacher reserves the right to disqualify you from the game if you are putting someone at risk of getting hurt. Good luck, seniors, may the odds be in your favor… and may the red bracelets be on your wrists.
