UPDATE ON THE FITNESS CENTER
During the District’s July 8th Board
of Education meeting, an update on the District Fitness Center was
provided and District Administration presented a solution for a new
fitness center that would enhance student programming. For those
unaware, the District Fitness Center was closed last summer after a
commissioned building review cited concerns that the structural supports
for the District Fitness Center did not meet current NYS Building Code
requirements for use as a fitness center. As a result, a temporary
student fitness center was created inside the high school.
recent presentation centered on a recommendation to remediate the
District Fitness Center to create a safe instructional area that could
serve as a new District Wrestling Center and subsequently convert a
section of the High School Auxiliary Gym into a modern fitness center.
It is anticipated that additional information will be presented and that
these discussions will continue during the District’s Board of
Education meeting on Tuesday, August 20.
The District will
continue to update the community regarding this matter. As the District
continues to develop a solution that best supports our students for
wellness and physical education all thoughts and suggestions are
welcome. Please feel free to contact the District with your thoughts and comments.
