Stadium to Close in January for Lighting Project

Stadium to Close in January for Lighting Project
 
Pine-Richland School District will be closing the Pine-Richland High School Stadium track to install a new lighting system from Jan. 6 through Feb. 16, 2020.  During the installation, the PRHS Spirit Room, stadium lobby and weight room will remain open. The track will reopen on Feb. 17, 2020. 
 
The district is installing new energy-efficient LED-lighting since the stadium lights were damaged during a hail storm on May 28, 2019. The new lighting solution will help save energy and reduce maintenance costs over time.  In addition, the new installation will benefit surrounding neighborhoods since the new system eliminates what is known as light spill and sky glow. Maintenance personnel will also be able to better manage the lights through scheduling and dimming when less light is needed.
 
We apologize for this minor inconvenience as we work to improve the facility for our students and the community.
