Dear Mt. Lebanon High School Parent or Guardian,

As we continue to monitor the ever changing developments related to COVID-19, I have some updates to share with you. 

In alignment with the Allegheny County Health Department's new order issued on July 8, 2020, we will resume activities associated with our Athletics & Activities Health & Safety Plan for our students on Monday, July 13, 2020.  We will continue to stay in Phase 1 until further notice, which includes pre-screening all coaches, staff, and students before any activity. Also be reminded that in-person activities are voluntary this summer, and a student’s level of participation will NOT affect the opportunity to be part of our programs as school opens.   

It is imperative that everyone involved continue to emphasize the importance of following all of the health and safety protocols established in our Athletics and Activities Health and Safety Plan, especially those that help mitigate the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus by practicing the following: 

Our coaches and staff will be diligent in enforcing the protocols that have been established.
