    To the Eldorado community, First of all, I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the awesome opportunity to be the Athletic Director and Head Football Coach at Eldorado High School and Schleicher County ISD. This is a great responsibility that I do not take lightly. Thank you for entrusting your student/athletes with me and our staff. I wanted to take this time to let everyone know we are continuing to follow the UIL, TEA and CDC guidelines and protocols for our summer strength and conditioning program. Please understand, we have your child’s safety and health at the top of our priority list, always. We as a staff are taking all of the necessary precautions that we can. Our staff is disinfecting our equipment before, during and after workouts, checking temperatures and athletes are checking in everyday answering the suggested questionnaire from the CDC. We have hand sanitizing stations. We are socially distancing as best we can as well. Please remember the summer strength and conditioning program is 100% voluntary workouts. We of course would love to have everyone attend, however, if your student/athlete is not in attendance it does not affect playing time, being cut or anything else. It is solely to improve and prepare their bodies and abilities for their upcoming sports. As of today, the confirmed cases in Schleicher County are not directly tied to anyone that has been in attendance of our workouts. Per the UIL guidelines “If a positive case is identified among a participant in these summer activities, either staff or student, the group to which that staff or student was assigned and in contact with must be removed from the sessions while all members of the group self-isolate… for two weeks” Thus far, to my knowledge, we have not had any cases amongst anyone in attendance of our camp. If we do we will address that at that time. I believe in open communication so if there are any questions or concerns please contact me either by phone or email. I also encourage you to come up and see what we are doing! If you do not feel comfortable sending your child to summer workouts, that is fine. If you or your child has any of the COVID-19 symptoms or you are concerned that you or a family member may be positive, please by all means, stay home. If we can help in any way please reach out to me and let me know...
