LGSUHSD Summer Program Guidelines

With the new orders from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, we have the opportunity to slowly reopen our outdoor facilities to our teachers, coaches and students. Outdoor facility use may begin on Monday, June 22, 2020 only after each site administrator and their designees hold an all stakeholders meeting to review these guidelines. These guidelines will be regularly enforced and supervised by the administrative designee at each site. Any violation will result in the cancellation of that cohort/team activity and possible disciplinary action.

General Guidelines:

  • All activities must take place outdoors. No use of classrooms, gyms, locker rooms, or weight rooms will be allowed until further notice.
  • In order to prevent overcrowding, facility use priority will be given to fall activities with facility use granted to other seasons/activities only if sufficient space is available on campus.
  • The parents of participants will be required to provide active consent for the participation of students.

Pre-Workout

  • All teachers, coaches and students should be screened for Covid 19 symptoms prior to workout. See below for screening questions.
  • Any person with cold/flu symptoms or allergies should not be allowed to take part in workouts 
  • Vulnerable individuals (immunocompromised, underlying health conditions, adults 60 years or older, asthma, etc.) should not oversee or participate in activities.
  • Temperature checks for all students and adult participants must be done at home each day prior to participation in an activity on campus.
  • Teachers, coaches and students must wear a mask to and from the workout location and at any time when not actively participating in an activity. Masks should be removed during strenuous physical activity. 
  • The summer activities/practices/workout are optional activities and in no way mandatory for students per District, School and CCS policy.

Limitations of Workouts

  • Activities will be conducted in cohorts of up to a maximum 12 students and at least  1 supervising teacher/coach. Once set, a cohort cannot change or add new members and will work together for a minimum of 3 weeks. 
  • Multiple cohorts of 12 are allowed at an activity, but cohorts must stay 25 or more feet apart and not interact in any way.  
  • All individuals within a cohort (teacher, coaches & students) must remain at least 6 feet apart at all times.
  • Whenever possible, teachers and coaches should minimize their interaction with multiple cohorts.
  • If a student misses an activity, they are not allowed to join another cohort for any reason.
  • Activities may consist of skill development and/or conditioning. Under no circumstances can there be physical contact among participants and/or supervisors (no five on five drills, scrimmages, etc.).
  • Activities may be no more than five days per week and for no more than two hours on any given day. 
  • The first week you begin activities,  sport or activity-specific equipment is prohibited (goals, sticks, bats, balls, rackets, etc)
  • Following the completion of the first week of activities, groups may incorporate the use of activity specific equipment such as goals, sticks, bats, balls, rackets, etc.

Other safety measures

  • If an individual in a cohort is diagnosed with COVID-19, the cohort is suspended and all members of the cohort are placed on a 14-day quarantine. A confirmed COVID – 19 diagnosis shall be reported to the teacher/coach and the school principal. FERPA rules apply. If someone is diagnosed, teachers and coaches cannot discuss this with other students or families. 
  • Teachers, coaches and students will be required to bring their own water bottle and not share with others.
  • Hand sanitizer must be available.  
  • Students are required to come straight to activities and leave immediately afterward.  No gathering on campus common areas, parking lots or fields/courts for more than 10 minutes.
  • Students will be encouraged to shower and wash their clothes and facemasks after their activity on a daily basis.

Equipment

  • Equipment/balls should be thoroughly wiped down with a disinfectant after each activity. The equipment used should stay within that cohort for the day and may not be shared with another cohort.
  • Use of any equipment needs to remain with each cohort. Different cohorts cannot share equipment on the same day.

Securing Facility

  • Teachers and coaches will close gates to fields and other outdoor facilities during the activity to prevent unauthorized use and interaction with other groups/individuals during the activity. 
  • Teachers and coaches will be responsible for opening and closing each facility after they are done. This includes the restrooms.
  • No one else may use the facility while students are working out.

Cleaning of Facilities After Use

  • Equipment- all equipment used must be wiped down and disinfected at the end of each activity.
  • Restrooms – The County order allows for restrooms to be open, but their use must be regulated to maintain social distancing and to prevent close contact.
  • Cleaning of restrooms – Teachers and coaches are responsible for opening and locking the restrooms when activities are completed. District custodial crews will clean the restrooms on a regular basis.
