Construction Information

Construction Equipment sits in the Fenton stadium

As we move into our summer mindset and prepare for our summer activities, we want to remind everyone that construction at Fenton High School will begin in June.


This vital work to our 1950’s facilities is long overdue and we are excited to get started! 


As you recall from our previous communications, this project aims to alleviate stormwater accumulation around our building. A new underground water storage tank will be installed next to the stadium, with new draining piping being placed underground in various locations behind the building.


Part of this process involves a need to change some of our daily operations to accommodate the construction. We greatly appreciate your patience during this process.


Please reference the map below as you continue reading.

In simplest terms, the back parking lot and all fields behind Fenton High School will be off limits from June until at least February 2024.


The red lines on the map indicate where fencing will be placed to keep cars and pedestrians away from the work site. The green line represents temporary fencing for a shorter portion of the project later in the summer. Please do not attempt to cross these fences.


Recreational walking and unofficial pick-up games will not be possible on any of our fields or sidewalks behind the building.


With that being said, we want to make sure it’s clear that all student programs, academic and extracurricular, will continue during construction. Nothing is being canceled.


We have made arrangements for some of our athletic programs to use local parks for practice, and all home football games will occur at Triton College.


As with any construction project, there will be frustrations and inconveniences along the way, but in the end our school will be in a much better place.

A byproduct of installing this new drainage system will be a new artificial turf field and running track inside the stadium. Our students were excited to help pick out the design.
