The number of sports and activities for boys and girls, both school-sponsored and in the community, has outgrown the district’s capacity and puts LPS at risk of being in violation of Title IX laws. The LPS Stadium is currently shared by all three high schools and is used by Littleton High School for PE class and band. In addition, numerous youth sports leagues in the community use the LPS Stadium. The constant, year-round wear and tear of the track and field at the LPS Stadium makes it difficult to maintain for student safety.
A new Junior Stadium on the Newton campus will provide an additional lighted field and track with spectator seating for both school and community sports teams to use. The Junior Stadium is scheduled to open in late 2022.
(June 2021) Fencing around the old Newton Middle School will be up by the end of the month. Abatement will take approximately 90 days. The schedule is currently on-track for a fall 2022 opening of the Junior Stadium.
Projected Grand Opening: 2022
