UPDATE: July 26, 2020 - Postponement of Galveston ISD eighth and ninth grade football Strength and Conditioning
It has come to our attention that a student-athlete participating in the eighth and ninth grade group of the football Strength and Conditioning recently tested positive for COVID-19. Even though no other athletes have reported a positive test, out of an abundance of caution, we will be postponing Strength and Conditioning for our eighth and ninth grade football players effective immediately.
The Galveston Independent School District Strength and Conditioning program is designed in accordance with UIL mandates to keep groups separated and limited in size. This protocol was put in place so that if a student-athlete were to test positive, groups could be isolated without postponing the entire program.
Parents will be notified directly when there is a determined date for the resumption of eighth and ninth grade Strength and Conditioning. Please do not return to campus until notified. Thank you for your support and understanding as we continue to make sure that the health and safety of our student-athletes and coaches remain our first priority.
