An Open House for the Emery High School Field Complex will be held on May 19 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.. The Emery County School District would like to invite the public to tour these amazing new facilities.

The grounds complex includes new baseball and softball fields, a grass football/soccer field with track, tennis courts and a state-of-the-art complex. The court features a full-size court that can be used for basketball, volleyball, and pickleball, as well as a 55-yard indoor grass court and batting cages. The field and indoor court are surrounded by a two-lane running track. The grounds also contain a concessions area, restrooms, team rooms and a scorer booth.

High school teams had the opportunity to try out many of the new facilities. including football/soccer field, track and field, baseball and softball. The tennis courts will be finished in June. The additional landscaping must wait for warmer weather and will also receive the final touches in June.

Renderings of the new Emery High School building will also be on display at the open house. The new high school will be built in two phases. Phase 1 consists of the construction of a large common space for students, a kitchen, administrative and counseling areas, a multimedia center, technical teaching facilities, an auxiliary gymnasium and various classrooms.

After moving students to the newly constructed areas, planned for fall 2024, the existing building (not including the Spartan Center and auditorium) is expected to be demolished. Phase 2 will then begin with the construction of the remaining classrooms and the attachment of the new construction to both the established auditorium and the Spartan Center. The final stage will be the finishing of a grass football pitch, parking lots and landscaping.

The Emery County School District is grateful for the support of our community to help fund this project as well as a substantial addition to Book Cliff Elementary which was completed in November 2021 and the construction of the new Ferron Elementary, which is expected to be open to students for the 2022-23 school year. All of these projects have improved and will improve education in our communities.

As construction of the new Ferron Elementary progresses, a public auction was scheduled on June 4 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The auction will take place at 125 West Mill Road in Ferron. For more information, please see the leaflet on our website at emeryschools.org.
