In our email to families this past Sunday evening, we let you know that at least one individual who participated in an athletic camp at Glenbrook South High School last week tested positive for COVID-19. Over the past two days, we have conducted additional contact tracing to help determine who may have been potentially exposed. At this time, any students and staff who may have been directly exposed have been contacted, told to remain off campus, and encouraged to quarantine.
We thank you for your input on the form we sent out in Sunday’s email. Parent input, along with our contact tracing findings, have provided us enough information that we feel we are able to begin athletic camps tomorrow, Wednesday, July 15, at Glenbrook South. For those families who would prefer not to send their student to athletic camp, please contact Linda Regal at our district office, email@example.com, for a full refund.
Please review the following parameters for attending camp:
- Participants who are attending camp should complete the daily health questionnaire prior to arriving at camp each day. Coaches will confirm this submission upon arrival and if it is not complete, the student will complete the questionnaire on-site prior to the start of camp.
- Any individual who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 must not come to campus for any reason for 10 days from the date of the positive test, even if the individual does not have symptoms AND after 3 days of being fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medication.
- Any individual who has been in close contact with a person who has been diagnosed with COVD-19 must not come to campus for any reason for 14 days from the date of possible exposure, regardless of test result or symptom presentation. The individual should also contact their doctor for further guidance. This is per Cook County Department of Public Health directives.
- Any individual who is experiencing COVID-like symptoms must not come to campus for any reason and should contact their doctor for further guidance.
In addition to the above parameters, we will follow all of the safety protocols that were listed in the original email about athletic camps.
