South High Field Update


MPS has budgeted approximately $4 million to build a new track, new turfed athletic field, new bleachers and lights at South High. Details are to be worked out in the first quarter of 2018, and the field is expected to be ready by 2019.

Not included in the budget, but considered by the South High Field Committee and by the Minnesota Partnerships' October 2016 report to the district:

  • Turfed practice field (field adjoining South)
  • Press box
  • Sound system
  • Larger storage shed
  • Security
  • Fencing

‚ÄčThe Barnard Field Committee of the South High Site Council will be discussing fundraising goals for these projects.

Committee Chairman Scott Schluter welcomes all South High stakeholders to ask questions, give suggestions, get creative, make connections and volunteer.  

"Let’s build a field that our students and our community can be proud to call home!"
