Fighting Highlanders News · WPIAL, through the ACHD, Statement on Meeting County Guidelines for Outdoor Gatherings – Wednesday, September 2, 2020 – BHS Athletics


All sports-related activities must adhere to the gathering limitations set forth by the Governor’s Plan for Phased Reopening (25 or fewer people for an indoor activity, 250 or fewer people for outdoor activity) and the facility as a whole may not exceed 50 percent of total occupancy otherwise permitted by law. All individuals present at the facility at which such activities are held count towards gathering limitations and must comply with the face-covering order and social distancing guidelines.

There is no longer a restriction on spectators or visitors. Each school can now determine who to allow into their facility as long as they do not exceed the 25 (indoor) and 250 (outdoor) maximum capacity limits.

Unfortunately, spectators will not be permitted into volleyball or other indoor contests due to the number of players and coaches required. Our school district will develop a plan with regards to all other outdoor sports as we must remain under the 250 maximum. More information will be communicated in the coming days.

Any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. John M. Saras, Athletic Coordinator/Assistant Principal, at 412-885-7515 and/or
