With the uptick in the cases in Allegheny County, athletics at Shaler Area will be taking a pause:
July 3, 2020
Dear Shaler Area families,
With the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Allegheny County and the new orders issued by the Allegheny County Health Department, Shaler Area School District is canceling all athletics and activities until Monday, July 13. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our students and staff. All athletics and activities will resume on July 13, pending any changes or additional orders from the Allegheny County Health Department, Pennsylvania Department of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or Pennsylvania Department of Education. The district’s Interscholastic Athletic Resocialization Plan will be followed when athletics and activities resume. The full plan is available at https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/sportshub2-uploads-prod/files/sites/929/2020/06/18171557/SASD-Interscholastic-Athletic-Resocialization-Plan-1.pdf.
For more information on the COVID-19 cases in Allegheny County or the Health Department’s July 2 orders, please visit: https://alleghenycounty.us/Health-Department/Resources/COVID-19/COVID-19.aspx.
We thank you for your understanding and flexibility during this time.
