A new set of rules will take effect Friday for anyone attending a sporting event at Baltimore County Public Schools. BCPS issued a stern warning unsafe and unruly behavior that will not be tolerated at sporting events. The new directive comes just ahead of a number of high school games set to be played across the county. The changes were spelled out in a letter sent Monday to Baltimore County parents and guardians. The district is placing additional staff at all secondary games, which includes recently hired safety assistants. Elementary and middle school students who attend those sporting events must go with an adult. And, spectators who enter a game and leave before the game is over will not be readmitted.
