Attention all Sanborn Central Community Members: The SC Board of Education and District Administration would like to invite any and all citizens to voice their opinions, concerns, and ideas regarding any potential upgrades to the football field complex in order to host two varsity football games a year, beginning in the 2018-2019 school year. The upgrades could include some combination of the following items: the purchase of and instillation of appropriate and adequate seating (for 500 spectators) and a large press box/concession stand/bathrooms at the field (currently there are limited concessions and portapots at the field (spectators can go into the school for concessions and use the bathrooms). The Board would like input on this potential project from the community members in order to make any decisions that would best fit the district as a whole. If any community member has an opinion, one way or the other, or has some thoughts and or ideas to express, please make plans to attend this meeting on TUESDAY, February 13th at 7:00 pm. If you have questions, please contact Justin Siemsen at

This is an estimated cost for potential upgrades on the football complex.  The costs of each area could fluctuate depending upon a given company that would be hired to do the work and everything that would be associated with each portion of the project.  If it is decided that we should proceed, then a more solidified budget would be developed.  If you would like to weigh in on this project, please make plans to attend the school board meeting on Tuesday, February 12th to provide any thoughts and opinions with the board.  The link below will take you to the estimate
