President Trump's attack on NFL players who kneel during the national anthem has made its way to the high school level. This week, a number of high school sports teams saw students protesting, or school officials forbidding they do so.

  • Traip Academy - Kittery, ME: Nine members of the girls' soccer team knelt during the anthem.
  • New Trier High School and Evanston Township High School - Chicago, IL: Nineteen players total knelt during the anthem, and one player from Evanston sat down.
  • Green Oaks Performing Arts Academy - Shreveport, LA: Student athletes planned to link arms during the national anthem as a form of silent protest.
  • Lakeview Centennial High School - Garland, TX: Eight football team members knelt during the anthem, while other teammates locked arms.
Schools punishing protestors
  • Parkway High School - Bossier Parish, LA: Principal Waylon Bates said failure to stand in a respectful manner "will result in loss of playing time and/or participation...continued failure to comply will result in removal from the team."
  • Manatee County School District - Manatee County, FL: The school district said in a statement to BuzzFeed that students are required to stand "unless excused in writing by a parent."
  • Holy Trinity Diocesan High School, McGann-Mercy High School, St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School - Long Island, NY: Students who kneel during the anthem could face "serious disciplinary actions."

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) announced Monday that the House will not hold any floor votes until Sept. 14, though members will remain on 24-hour notice to return to Washington in case a deal on coronavirus stimulus is reached.

Why it matters: Democrats and the Trump administration remain deadlocked and have not met since negotiations broke down without a deal on Friday.

President Trump tweeted Monday that he'll deliver his speech accepting the Republican nomination for president at either the Gettysburg battlefield in Pennsylvania or at the White House.

The state of play: Republican National Convention planners are looking for a new venue for the president to deliver his acceptance speech after convention events were canceled in Jacksonville, Fla., due to coronavirus concerns.
