We are excited to announce that our sports programs have been cleared to practice fully & begin competitions when each team is ready.
Football and Water Polo are still required to go through COVID testing before they are allowed to compete and we are working with the district & county to get more details on this. If LA County Case Rate falls under 7 cases per 100,000 then they will not need the testing. We are currently at 7.2.
Basketball and Volleyball are still restricted to outdoor practices and games at this time.
The district has also adjusted and added some items that need to be taken care of by each student before they are allowed to compete:
#1- Students need to be cleared through athleticclearance.com. Physical signed by an MD and insurance card must be uploaded to the student’s profile. No students will be allowed on campus if they are not cleared and have not completed the requirements below.
#2- Students need to bring the 2 documents in the links below to practice, Signed by Parent and Student. These documents can also be found on the Athletics Website Return to Practice Page. If you completed the HLPUSD Protocol Form prior, you will need to complete it again due to some minor changes.
Informed Consent Form
#3- Students and Parents need to go to the Athletics Website, view the informational video and complete the Google Form showing they viewed video. Some of the information regarding the check-in process & cohort sizes in the video has changed recently, so if you have questions please contact your Head Coach.
#4- Lastly, every day that the student is scheduled to attend practice they need to complete the Entry Screening Form. Once students begin receiving this form, it must be completed every day the student is coming to campus and must be completed prior to coming to practice. Students should be on the lookout for an email from Hacienda La Puente Unified and/or Qualtrics. This email is how we will be conducting the daily health screening required for admittance to practice.
Here is how the system will work:
1. Students will be receiving an email at whatever email address (personal or HLP account) is associated with their AERIES account. Once students get the first email, they can ask to have a text sent to them each morning. If students don’t get a text message, then they will receive an email.
2. Once students answer the questions, they will get a green “check mark” or red “X” depending on the answers to the questions. They will also receive an email showing that you completed the form.
3. When arriving to campus, students will be required to show that they completed the form. Students can show a Screenshot of the green check mark with time stamp on it, or just show the email showing completion of the form at the check-in.
If you have any questions about this process or practice schedules, you can contact your Head Coach.
