Woccisd Suspends All Summer Workouts

 

Last updated 6/11/2020 at 11:26am



A WOS varsity student-athlete in the high school football program has tested positive for COVID-19.

UIL advised all schools that workouts were allowed to begin on Monday, June 8, 2020. On Monday, June

8, 2020, the student attended the varsity workout. Tuesday morning, the student contacted and

informed Coach Thompson that he had possible exposure through contact with a family member who

tested positive for COVID-19. Upon learning this information, Coach Thompson advised the student to

stay home and get tested. Coach Thompson then notified the student’s workout partner of his possible

exposure, advising that student to stay home as well. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, WOCCISD

will suspend all summer workouts for 14 days. The decision to shut down the summer workout program

ensures that we are making every effort to keep our students and staff safe.

“I am proud of how the students and faculty handled this situation. They followed all guidelines to keep

the athletes and coaches safe, reducing the risk to others. We are all learning to be more aware of the

health and safety of others,” stated Dr. Rickie Harris, WOCCISD Superintendent
