Dear Parents and Guardians,


The health, safety, and well-being of BGCWPA participants, staff, and families is our number one priority. As COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and its impact continues to evolve, we are cognizant of the growing concern by many in our communities. 


Hourly, information is coming to all of us from state and national health officials.  Day by day BGCWPA administration will work to analyze all options. The emphasis at this time is prevention and protecting the overall health of our communities.  The decision has been made to cancel all sports programming this evening, March 12, 2020.  BGCWPA will close all of the stand alone clubhouses (school based locations will follow school district protocol to include Scott Primary and Penn Hills Charter School see school website for communications) on Friday March 13, 2020 through Sunday March 15, 2020 to proactively clean the facilities.  As mentioned above decisions and information is coming to us daily and therefore decisions will be made daily. 


BGCWPA will continue to communicate with participants, staff, and families via email communications, social media,news stations, and postings at the Clubhouses.  BGCWPA will follow recommendations from Centers for Disease Control (CDC). 


We recognize the effects that this causes for those involved. We appreciate your partnership in helping to address and mitigate this outbreak for all. 


Thank you,


Dr. Lisa Abel-Palmieri
