On June 25, Beaumont ISD received notice that a staff member assigned to facilitate West Brook High School summer workouts tested positive for COVID-19, according to a news release.

The employee last participated on Monday, June 22, and all students that attended summer workouts at West Brook have received individual notices of potential exposure. The staff member’s participation was limited to health screening and record keeping. However, because there was the potential for exposure to all participants, West Brook summer workouts will be suspended until July 9, in an abundance of caution.

Many student and parents received notice regarding the West Brook football summer program last night and early this morning, please note this notice supersedes the prior communication, as the District learned of thissecond positive result following the release of the notice related to football. West Brook summer workouts will not resume until July 9, and all participation is STRICTLY VOLUNTARY.

"We will continue to comply with all state and local guidance and strictly enforce BISD’s rigorous health screening, social distancing, and sanitization practices for all student workouts," the release reads. "The health and safety of our students and community remains our top priority, and the District will continue to closely monitor the guidance from the Local Health Department as it continues summer operations. We appreciate your cooperation as we work through these challenges and continue to support our Beaumont ISD community."
