TURF FIELD CONSTRUCTION BEGINS
Students, Parents & Guardians:
 
On Friday May 22 the process for replacing the turf field and upgrading the track and visitor facilities at GHS will begin.  The equipment needed to start this process will be stored in the Burnside Parking Lot.  This is the lot that exits onto Main Avenue.
 
Starting Friday, no students or staff are permitted on the track or on the field.  Also, because of the need to store construction equipment, many student parking spaces will be blocked.  If your student uses this lot, available parking may be a challenge.  This email, simply serves as notice to you that construction is beginning and will last through the summer.
 
As always, thank you for your support.
