As the region manages its way through the first week of the “yellow phase” under the Pennsylvania guidelines, Upper St. Clair Township and School District are set to begin the gradual reopening of the community’s outdoor resources.
This Friday, May 22, 2020, tennis courts and sports courts in Upper St. Clair will reopen for use. Singles play is encouraged. Also beginning on Friday, the Upper St. Clair School District will permit use of tracks, fields and outdoor basketball courts at all district buildings. Due to ongoing construction, access to the Upper St. Clair High School turf field and track will be limited to 4-9 p.m. Monday-Friday, and from 8 a.m.-9 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. All users should follow guidelines and social distancing recommendations established by the Centers for Disease Control and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
As directed by Pennsylvania’s “yellow phase,” organized athletics, programs and permit-based activity are still prohibited on all Township and Upper St. Clair School District fields and within facilities. In addition, all playgrounds as well as the Community & Recreation Center (C&RC) remain closed through the “yellow phase” until further notice. Once the region enters the “green phase,” and upon further guidance from the Pa. Department of Health and Allegheny County Department of Health, additional decisions will be made regarding summer aquatics and organized athletics. The C&RC continues to waive membership fees through the closure.
“The Upper St. Clair community and region as a whole has worked extremely hard to get to this point permitting managed outdoor activity,” said Matthew R. Serakowski, Upper St. Clair Township Manager. “We want to thank everyone for your understanding and patience during this response. We ask that you continue to be respectful of one another, practice appropriate social distancing and enjoy the outdoors.”
Upper St. Clair administrators will continue to review available information and consult with local leaders regarding additional permitted activities.
“It is our hope that we will be able to offer more overall access as the summer progresses,” Dr. John Rozzo, superintendent of schools, said. “Upper St. Clair is a community filled with caring individuals who work together for the greater good and find ways to help their neighbors through challenging times. I am certain we will emerge stronger than ever.”
