Despite concerns over potentially incelement weather, Glen Rock school administrators still expect to open the new high school baseball field for play on April 1.
Questioned by parent Denise Blind as to the field's status, Business Administrator Michael Rinderknecht on Monday said workers from Turco Golf Construction are making steady progress.
Though a day or two may be lost to snow or other adverse conditions, Rinderknecht said, "we think we may be able to adhere to that schedule."
Upgrades to the baseball field – budgeted separately from the other athletic field projects at the high school – include new sod, protective fences, field re-grading, dugouts, a sprinkler system.
The board voted to approve the $365,000 contract in December, drawing from its capital fund. To allow the grass sod on the baseball field to stabilize, soccer, football and lacrosse will not be permitted to use the baseball field in 2013.
