This message is a reminder that all those attending sporting events at Mars Athletic Complex, Mars Area High School gymnasium and other District facilities are required to wear a face covering (mask or shield) and to practice social distancing at all times. Any spectators who do not comply with the face-covering requirement may be asked to exit the venue.
This requirement remains in line with guidelines established by the Pennsylvania Office of the Governor and the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as well as Mars Area School District’s Health & Safety Plan. The District will continue to adhere to all local, state, PIAA and WPIAL protocols regarding athletics and activities.
For any parents/guardians and community members, who do not feel comfortable attending sporting events in person, many Varsity/JV games/meets occurring at Mars Athletic Complex and in Mars Area High School’s main gymnasium will be live streamed via Hudl and on the Mars Athletics YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/channel/UChhmuaA3UMKtahpqNpeWaMw).
In addition, all parents/guardians and community members attending events at Mars Athletic Complex are asked to enter/exit the stadium via the main entrance, which may be accessed via the main Mars Area Middle School parking lot. Those attending games/activities at Mars Area High School are reminded that they must enter/exit the building through the secure vestibule located to the right of the school’s main entrance. All those seeking entrance into the building must pass through metal detectors and submit to a bag search.
Our District appreciates your ongoing support as we continue to work with you to ensure the health, safety and welfare of our entire school community. Thank you for your cooperation.
Dr. Mark Gross
