Important Graduation Information
It is likely that the R-VI District will approve stadium renovations which will likely begin in April 2017. While this project may pose inconveniences during construction, the long-term benefits will be plentiful. As you know, there has been a need for additional seating at the stadium for many years. Our current 1,500 seating capacity will be nearly doubled upon completion of the renovations. Renovations will also incorporate new restroom facilities, a new concession stand, new stadium lighting, a new press box, and a new stadium entrance. All individuals will enter the stadium from the current entrance near Sunshine Drive.
The entire project will take approximately 4-5 months to complete from start to finish. There is never a “best” time to complete such a project. As a result of the construction/renovation, it is necessary to have commencement for the Class of 2018, on May 24th at Jefferson College.
In addition, all stadium events occurring after March 26th will be relocated to other neighboring schools. There will be a few specific track meets and soccer matches scheduled during March that will be held at the R-VI stadium. Other soccer games will likely be held at Jefferson R-7. More information will be provided in late winter.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call myself or Mr. Allen (Director of Activities). We would be happy to share the renderings of the proposed renovations with you at any time.
