This Thursday and Friday evenings we at USD 431 would like to welcome you to the updated Elton Brown Field and Bill Kimble Track. The field is complete and we take great pride in the partnership with ATG to provide our athletes and community with such a fine surface. We are not yet completely finished with the Track and surface. Although it is safe to walk and stand on please be careful not to dig into the surface. In the coming weeks they will be putting the top coat on the track, giving the track a red top surface with grey exchange zones. Then to put the finishing touches on the track they will be back one last time to paint the lanes and other markings on the track and runways. As we move forward, please understand this has been a long process which we would like to see last the for many years to come. Please do your best to take care of and ask your children to assist in taking care of this facility. Thank you and Welcome Back! USD 431
