Dear Tesoro Parents and Athletes –
Happy New Year! As we begin the second semester, we are cautiously optimistic that we will have a sports season this spring. Tesoro teams have planned to continue (or start) their preparation for the upcoming season, but we need your help. Please continue to wear a mask in public, wash hands frequently, and practice social distancing. As a member of Team Tesoro, we need to work together to get to where we want to be (on the field, court, track or pool). Coaches will continue to follow CDPH, CDC and CUSD Covid-19 protocols. Please inform your coach when your athlete has been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19 and immediately begin the quarantine process. The CUSD will follow up with your family, and those that may have been exposed on your team. Students that have tested positive may not return to practice/competition until cleared by their physician.
With the surge of Covid-19 transmission rates in California, we understand and support that many families have options, whether 100% online or hybrid for their student-athlete’s education. Although teams may have practices scheduled, head coaches have been advised that families can keep their online athlete(s) home, until the family feels more comfortable sending their athlete back to campus. Once an athlete makes a team, he/she will not be dropped for missing practice due to Covid-19 concerns. Coaches will provide an alternate workout for those that are staying home with the hope of returning to practice/competition.
These guidelines are in place starting Tuesday, January 5, 2021. Below is the CIF Proposed Plan for the Return of Educational-Based Athletics. This message is for informational purposes only and not intended as medical or legal advice.
