Dennison Stadium field upgrades
Back in mid-May 2020, we shared information with families and the community on the feasibility study for synthetic turf and an asphalt track at stadium field, as well as updates to the Dennison Stadium Field Complex (stadium field) to be completed at Central Park. Included in that communication was a form where families could submit questions that would be added to an FAQs document (see FAQs below).
Current project status
As of August 2021: The stadium field will open for its first events in August, and the final touches will be completed in September.

Where it began
On Sept. 15, Dr. Troy Urdahl, director of Athletics, Activities, Facilities and Transportation, provided the School Board with a final recommendation for this project at their regular meeting. These recommendations were reviewed and approved by the School Board, with construction starting in early October, 2020.
The majority of the prep and soil work for the stadium field project was completed in the winter of 2020. In April 2021, the construction work will start back up with finish-work aspects of the project, including the track surface, synthetic turf surface, and bleachers.
