The Board of Directors of Steilacoom Historical School District No. 1 recently approved the design and construction of a new SHS artificial playing surface at the football field, in addition to other site improvements.
Design is underway, and construction work will start just prior to school ending this year or immediately thereafter. The scope of work will affect every playing field within the SHS athletic field/sports complex, to include the football field, the baseball field, the athletic track, and the tennis courts.
Access to the entire area within the property fence line will be declared a construction zone and scheduling or use of the field facilities during the summer will not be allowed. This decision was made due to public and worker safety and construction scheduling considerations.
Alternate locations for fall sports practices are being planned. The work is scheduled to be completed in time for the first home football game.
Steilacoom High School’s office will remain open during the summer, with patron parking permitted in front of the main entrance to the school.
