We are also required to skip rows between bleachers when choosing a seat in the bleachers. We have dots on the bleachers to help with social distanced seating. Please try to stagger when sitting on the dots so you aren’t sitting directly behind another family. Each group would have a clear view of the court directly in front of them. We will also have rows blocked off behind each teams bench for our varsity and JV teams to sit in to ensure the health and safety of our teams.

Post game: after the game is over all fans are required to leave the gym the same direction in which they entered and proceed back to their vehicles in the student parking lot. Home teams will exit one set of doors and Visiting teams will exit another set of doors. Theses doors will be labeled. Please do not access the playing court or loiter in the gym or lobby after the game.

Visiting team seating and locker rooms: The last section of bleachers on the locker room end of the gym will be reserved for home and visiting teams. We ask that teams come dressed but locker rooms will be available if needed.

Cheerleaders: We ask that visiting teams cheerleaders not attend games. Home team cheerleaders will be seated socially distanced in the section behind the home team bench.

We apologize for any inconvenience due to the Coronavirus, but abiding by these changes allows us to continue attending school and being able to play athletics here at BHS. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation with these protocols, they are intended to keep ourselves and others safe during this pandemic. We appreciate everyone working together and showing the Jacket Pride during this time.
