I hope that everyone is safe, healthy, and ready to get back to work. I received an email from UIL today that summarized any changes to the strength camp guidelines and included the plans to begin fall competition seasons as scheduled on the UIL calendar. The UIL, and PISD, will continue to evaluate the COVID situation and make decisions to do what is best for the student / athletes.
Here are some notes from the email:
The UIL is releasing revisions to the COVID-19 risk mitigation guidelines for summer strength and conditioning/skill development. This updated guidance is effective immediately until the first day of instruction or the start of in-season activities, whichever is earlier.
For complete details please see the UIL website, but updates are briefly summarized below:
As the public health situation changes, and/or if subsequent Executive Orders are issued by the Office of the Governor, these guidelines may be further modified. Schools should carefully review this guidance, as well as information released by TEA, when re-evaluating local plans for reducing the risk of spreading the virus. Schools should consider their local context related to the virus and plan accordingly.
At this time, UIL plans to begin fall competition seasons as scheduled on the UIL calendar. UIL will continue to work with state officials and monitor CDC and other federal guidance to determine any further modifications to this guidance.
We will continue with the schedule that was set on June 22nd:
7:00-10:00 - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
7:00-8:00 – Friday (on the turf)
10th – 12th grade
9:00-12:00 – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
9:00-10:00 – Friday (on the turf)
Please make sure your son brings water, cleats, tennis shoes, and is wearing his mask.
Let me know if you have any questions.
