SPLOST & Roundabout Update

Lots of changes happening on campus this summer. We still have several activities planned for the campus during construction and it is IMPERATIVE that no one is to be in any construction or unauthorized area on campus…..The contractors are up against a tight deadline and they need our help to make sure no one is in their way or in an unsafe area.

Track and Stadium will be closed all summer due to extensive track repairs and resurfacing….new jump lanes/pits have been completed on the north end of the stadium….

Pope Track and Stadium Closure

Pope High School track and stadium will be closed to the community from Wednesday, May 25 through August 5.
