Exciting progress at La Follette

We are committed to keeping you informed as we complete construction from the MMSD 2020 facilities referendum.

Exciting progress at La Follette

Construction work at La Follette High School is progressing quickly in preparation for the upcoming school year. In the academic wing, window frames have been installed and are ready for glazing. Crews started framing and drywall in the bathrooms and classroom spaces. Next up, workers will start installing the ceiling grid.

Outside the building, the turf crew is putting the finishing touches on the new turf field at Lussier Stadium. The track has been paved and bleachers are getting installed on the east end of the field. Meanwhile, the concrete foundations for the courtyard expansion were poured and are ready to be backfilled. When complete, the expanded corridors will improve building circulation.

Once complete, the freshly renovated Lussier Stadium will feature an expanded turf field, larger track, and new bleachers, lighting, and pole vault pit. The expanded layout will provide additional opportunities for students and the community to use the space.
