Hunt Middle School gets athletic field turf

Driving through the neighborhood, you can’t help but notice the daily progress on the new Hunt Middle School. It’s about 60 percent complete. In just a few weeks, workers will remove the temporary fencing surrounding the site to install permanent fencing that will surround the school campus.

Surveyors completed their layout of the parking lot and driveways, and now workers are forming curbs, gutters and sidewalks adjacent the building. Right-of-way street improvements including extending sidewalk, curb and gutter along Vassault and S. 10th Street are also in progress. 

Last week, job site trailers moved to the parking lot at the “mothership” dome to make room for grading and drainage for turf athletic field installation that starts Monday, March 8. The new Hunt will have three main field areas; two of those fields will have a multi-use purpose for sports such as baseball and soccer. The eight-lane track has football, lacrosse and soccer field layouts, as well as a long jump and triple jump pit area. The softball field will be used only for softball activities.

The new Hunt will open as a comprehensive International Baccalaureate middle school for West End and Fircrest families. It sits in the same location as the old main building, with the main entrance on S. 10th Street, opposite of S. Whitman Street.

Construction continues through June 2021, with the new Hunt expected to open in fall 2021.
