Dear Galveston ISD Student-Athletes
Summer Strength & Conditioning/Skills Instruction activities for Galveston ISD are suspended for two weeks, effective immediately. Governor Abbott held a press conference today and shared that southeast Texas is seeing a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases, especially in young people. Therefore, we feel it necessary to suspend Summer Strength & Conditioning/Skills Instruction activities until at least July 13. Safety is our number one concern and we thank you for your patience as we commit to do our part to curtail the spread of this virus in our community. We plan to resume activities on July 13 and we will keep parents informed if those plans should change. Stay safe.

Diagnosed at age 12, the now-18-year-old is living with intractable, drug-resistant epilepsy. He’s a crusader for epilepsy awareness. And he was instrumental in the passage of HB 684, also known as Sam’s Law, passed in this year’s session of the Texas Legislature. The law, now in effect, requires all Texas public school personnel whose duties include regular contact with students to be trained in seizure recognition and seizure first aid.
