The Southold School District will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening of its new state of the art track and field sports complex Tuesday at 10 a.m.

The school district will involve all students and all staff at the secondary school in the ceremony. All students and staff will be asked to come to school dressed in red or white.

If students played a sport at Southold, they will march out from the high school under the banner of that sport, led by a current coach. Those who do not play a school sport will march under the banner of their respective classes (freshman, sophomore, etc.).

All participatns will march out to the new track and field,and take a lap around the track under the banner of a sport or advisor.

Members of the board of education and other invited guests will be introduced.

A bond issue funded the new complex. The athletic facility is part of a $ 9.7 million capital project that will see improvements throughout the campus and at both school buildings.
