Enrollment Information
Stadium Bleachers Announcement

 

 

August 22, 2016

Dear Black Knight Fans,

Because we take safety seriously and due to concerns with the structural integrity of the existing home bleacher system located on the West side of the stadium, we have requested further inspection and certification.  Until that process can be completed and if required, necessary repairs can be made, we have installed temporary bleachers on the East side of the stadium that will house both home and visitor spectators this season.  We will still utilize the press box located above the existing stadium for the home team and only authorized staff will be permitted to occupy that area.  We appreciate everyone’s full cooperation this season in complying with the new seating arrangements as we work through this process. 

 

Thank you,

Michelle Mrakovich

Superintendent, Newbury Local Schools.
