UPDATE: Installation of the new turf field at Evergreen High has been delayed due to permitting issues with King County.
The new field was originally slated to be completed for the start of fall practices, but that’s no longer the case.
Here’s more from Highline Public Schools:
Alternate Practice Locations, More Information Soon
Work on the synthetic turf field at Evergreen High School is behind schedule due to a delay in the King County permitting process.
Staff from our Capital Construction department expected the new field would be completed for the start of fall practices. Unfortunately, until the permit is issued, work cannot start. Staff are working with King County to expedite the permit.
We recognize this is a disappointment to our student athletes and coaches.
When we receive the permit to proceed, we will inform Evergreen families, staff and community members and provide an updated schedule.
