3. If the weather is extremely cold, low wind chill, or rain/snow I will cancel preseason activity
4, All players must be registered in powerschool for football, have a current physical, have the covid consent form checked in powerschool, must provide a saliva sample every week. Those samples can be dropped off in the training room. If you need a saliva sample kit please email the athletic secretary phyllis_lifonti@glenbard.org. You cannot get a saliva kit until you have done the covid consent form.
