Schuylerville High School track closed during construction

Student athletes and the public will temporarily lose access to the track area at Schuylerville Central School District this spring and sum¬mer while crews install artificial turf field on the football field that is surrounded by the track.

The track area will be closed Tuesday, April 27 through the middle of August, as a safety precaution while the turf installa¬tion is done, school officials said.

Team practices and games will be relocated to the fields at Fort Hardy, Schuyler Park and the turf field at Stillwater. Physical education classes will use other areas of the campus and the indoor gym¬nasiums for the remainder of the school year.

The turf field was approved by district voters in February. Details about the cost of turf and its advantages are available at

For more information, call the district at 695-3255.
