Important Athletic and UIL information
Due to the rising number of COVID 19 cases in the Harris County area, HISD has suspended Middle School sports until rates come down. HISD plans to re-evaluate Athletics on Jan 22nd , at that time if rates are lower Athletics will return.
Important things to know:
-Coaches are to still collect paperwork, turn in Master sheets to the Trainer/Athletics, and all required paperwork to the Athletics office. The idea is when they allow us to go back, we can pick up and start practicing ASAP.
-Parents that paid the $35 for HISD insurance will two options. We can hold the money as they re-evaluate and apply it when sports start back or refund payment back.
-Modified schedules based on current teams will be sent out soon.
-No BEFORE or AFTER school practices but can hold team meetings on "Teams" to keep all kids engaged and working out.
-When we return all Coaches and Athletes will have on a mask on during practice, sidelines, locker rooms. Only time allowed to be removed is when actively participating. Social Distancing needs to happen whenever possible.
