No Spectators February 22nd-March 7th
Bridgeport School District recently announced that no spectators will be permitted to attend high school or middle school athletic events due to COVID-19 restrictions. This decision will provide time to evaluate the effectiveness of physical distancing and safety protocol changes developed to allow the return to sports.
The Bridgeport School District will begin with no spectators to acclimate our school with the new mitigation strategies for teams, cheerleaders, officials, medical personnel and event staff, and reduce the chances that schedules may be impacted by inadvertent exposure to the COVID virus.
Bridgeport Middle and High School feel that this is necessary to prevent the gathering of crowds at the athletic events and the potential spread that occurs in group settings. We also feel that this is a reasonable compromise that will be effective in keeping rates under control while allowing our student-athlete to perfom. Our hope is that this is a temporary strategy. It is within our control to bring the infection rate down and to keep our students, staff and community safe and healthy.
This decision applies only to the first two weeks (Feb. 22-March 7) of the upcoming fall sports season. Separate decisions will be made as we continue to monitor local health data, health mitigation strategies and other factors. Bridgeport Middle and High School, and several other regional schools, have made a commitment to live stream as many of our contests for fans to watch online. Bridgeport will have our schedules on the Varsity News Network (VNN) website found at https://www.bsdmustangs.com. Under the "MORE" tab on the website you will find the link that will used for live streaming games.
We thank you for your continued support in our efforts to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
