Roslyn student athletes and their coaches are looking forward to the installation of a new, world-class track and field facility at Roslyn High School. Work is scheduled to begin Monday, May 22, 2023 and is slated for completion by the beginning of the next school year—weather permitting.
The project will include demolition, site preparation, and new engineering and construction of the current track and field. The completed project will include a new running track, new multi-purpose turf field, a long jump/triple jump, a high jump, sand pits, a steeplechase, a pole vault, new perimeter fencing, a newly designed staircase/pathway to the press box, field lighting, and hi-resolution cameras.
“Roslyn High School has a proud tradition of being very competitive in track and field,” said Director of Athletics Michael Brostowski. “This project will help give our students an edge, give a boost to our athletic program, and benefit all the residents who use the track during non-school hours.”
While the entire area is being renovated, it will be closed to the public. Community members can use the outdoor facility at Roslyn Middle School during the hours when school is not in session and no after-school events are scheduled. These guidelines will apply to the summer school program.
“These upgrades are necessary to keep our outdoor facilities up to date and competitive,” said Superintendent Allison Brown. “This will benefit our physical education program and our extracurricular programs tremendously, and provide a fresh, new environment for our community members to enjoy.”
