We celebrated Thanksgiving with a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving theme. We had the traditional Charlie Brown food; popcorn, toast, jelly beans, pretzel sticks. My students decorated the table with a fall theme; acorns, leaves, and pine cones. They also did an amazing job making pilgrim hats and Native American headbands.
After professional inspection and evaluation, it has come to the administration and board’s attention that the bleachers at the fieldhouse are experiencing structural issues which require further evaluation of possible solutions.
While administration continues to look into possible solutions, it is necessary to move all junior varsity and varsity boys’ basketball games to the high school gymnasium instead of the fieldhouse. While we recognize the popularity of the fieldhouse and the preference of our teams and fans to host games there, this measure is necessary to ensure the safety of our fans and players.
We have not taken this decision lightly and understand the importance of the history of the fieldhouse venue. Replacement of the bleachers is estimated at approximately $400,000. Until the preliminary and final budgets have been approved, the board cannot determine final solutions to this issue. We thank the public for their understanding as the board works toward managing finances while still providing appropriate and safe venues for student activities.
