Status of Athletic Fields

As the new school year approaches, we are beginning to enjoy fall athletic practices and games. At the same time, our capital building project is starting to wind down.

In order that our schools can open their doors on September 5, ready for students, many of our buildings & grounds crew members are busy assisting the district’s custodial staff with cleaning, moving furniture, and evaluating safety in each of our buildings. This is no small feat when we have to work alongside and around construction crews.

We do anticipate that, once school starts, our buildings & grounds staff will return to their important work on our fields. In the meantime, you may notice that our game fields, while prepared for play, are being kept at a moderate standard.

In addition, as a cost savings, the district is not ordering porta-potties for most games. Restrooms nearest to the fields will be unlocked. From time to time, if a golf cart is available with district staff to drive it, people with mobility issues may be transported to nearby restrooms during the games.

The patience and assistance everyone has provided in terms of practicing in alternate locations and traveling to alternate sites for athletic contests these past few years is much appreciated. We thank you for your understanding as we make adjustments while construction work continues. Soon our athletic fields, gymnasiums and pool will be looking their very best!
