In mid November, construction crews began clearing and grading the land behind the high school athletic field to make way for an access road off of Route 50. This road will be used to get to and from the equipment storage building that is being installed as part of the project. It will also be the primary roadway for construction vehicles accessing the high school work site during renovations and the construction of the multi-purpose turf field.
Construction of the new field with an 8-lane synthetic track; stadium lighting, masonry work on the high school pool and the construction of the equipment storage building are slated to begin in spring 2015.
Also up on the referendum schedule is the construction of the new traffic circle and student drop-off area at Stevens Elementary School, as well as the reconfiguration of the school's main office. While the main office is being renovated and upgraded, visitors will use an alternate entrance located on the right-side of the school. Clearly marked signs to help direct visitors to the temporary entrance will be posted on school property.

The entire renovations referendum is expected to be complete by the 2016-17 school year.
