Fall Game Expectations for COVID-19 Prevention
Extra-curricular activities are a choice to attend. We completely understand if you do not wish to attend events. If you choose to attend events the following mitigation efforts are required to help ensure player, coach, and spectator safety:
❏ Posted signage prominently indicating no one should attend or participate in games if they currently have symptoms or have been in contact with anyone with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis in the last 14 days.
❏ Players should use their own equipment as much as possible.
❏ Coaches must sanitize shared equipment before and after each game.
❏ Players, coaches, and fans should check their temperatures before attending games. This is the responsibility of the player and coaches and should be done at home before attending. A temperature of 100.3 or above is considered a fever and you should not attend or participate in the event.
❏ Anyone with symptoms of illness is not allowed to participate in or attend the game.
❏ Schools must also implement any other reasonable measures under the circumstances of each school to ensure the social distancing of staff, students, and community members increased hygiene practices, and other public health measures to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 consistent with guidance issued by the IDPH. Each school has the right to impose more stringent guidelines for fans to attend. If attending an away game as a fan plan to have a mask in case that school is requiring you to have one to attend.
❏ Concessions stands are permitted. Concessions will be limited to pre-packaged items only (Pop, water, Gatorade, candy, chips, and items already bagged.) There will be no concession stands at Junior High and some other lower-level events. If the concession stand is not open on a varsity event we will notify fans so they can bring their own items (coolers will not be allowed).
❏ Public Health will be contacted if a positive case of COVID-19 is reported
❏ Bleacher space will be limited at Football games. Every other row will be marked off as not usable. There will be no student section or band section allowed in the stands. Fans should bring their own chairs, blankets, or will need to stand at events. Plan on needing your own chair or blanket for away games. Fans should practice social distancing between different household units and accept personal responsibility for public health guidelines. Even though this is an outdoor event we are recommending wearing masks when social distancing is not possible.
Thank you for following the guidelines above and making this opportunity for our athletes possible. Please understand that anyone that does not follow the guidelines above may be asked to leave or cause future games to be canceled. Please understand that this opportunity is unique and will be different than a normal season. Refrain from addressing players, coaches, and officials negatively during games to help make this experience run smoothly. We look forward to seeing you all again soon and GO EAGLES!
The Underwood Community School Board approved a hybrid plan for the middle and high school to return to school in 2020-21. There are many questions about what that would look like, so here is a list of informative articles and documents. This page will be the resource page for high school information and will be updated as new information becomes available that you might find valuable.
