Athletics, Co-Curriculars, Clubs and Extracurricular Activities

  • Student and staff health and safety remain a top priority. Our District also recognizes the important role athletics, co-curricular, clubs, and extracurricular activities (“Activities”) play in the school experience. While there is an inherent health risk in group activities and it is difficult to balance all interests, our District is committed to providing students non-instructional opportunities while taking steps to ensure health and safety. We have adopted COVID-19 related guidance, and all Activities must abide by the guidance.

    Our District will allow community use of our facilities based on our facility use guidelines.

    Supervision
    Supervision is limited to ICCSD employees with extra-duty contracts through Appendix C of the ICEA negotiated agreement. Prior to serving as a volunteer (or unpaid) coach/sponsors, individuals must complete a volunteer form. Activities that meet on-site must have a staff sponsor at all gatherings. If a staff sponsor is not available, the Activity must meet virtually.

    Face coverings and social distancing
    To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the CDC recommends wearing a well-fitting mask indoors in public if you are in an area with high COVID-19 community transmission levels. Face coverings will be available for students, staff, and visitors in each building. The District can not guarantee consistent social distancing of 3 feet during activities.

    Concession Stands
    Concession/refreshments stands will utilize standard operations.  

    Travel
    For travel out of the District, students and staff must comply with local, state, and federal regulations in effect in the location the students and/or staff are traveling. Students and staff must continue to comply with District guidance as well. The District strongly encourages any program that is planning travel outside the District to obtain travel insurance as travel guidance could change based on JCPH, IDPH, CDC guidance, and/or County transmission rates. The District will not reimburse families for trips canceled due to changes in the District’s health and safety guidelines or changes made by other jurisdictions/organizations.
