Football Classification and Redistricting--A meeting for parents/players/interested community members
Every two years, the Iowa High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) reviews football classifications based on Iowa school district enrollment in grades 9 through 11. This year, the State of Iowa has seen the most forfeits and cancellations of programs that it has ever dealt with; however, the IHSAA committee was committed to maintain one class of 8-man football and five classes of 11-man football in Class A, 1A, 2A, 3A, and 4A through 2018 – 2020. The IHSAA committee understands that this is a two-year commitment and that the ability to maintain 5 classes of 11-man football will be evaluated again in the fall of 2019. During this meeting, the committee determined that the enrollment cap for 8-man would increase from 115 students in grades 9 through 11 to 120. New London currently has 115 students in grades 9 through 11, and for this reason, we identified a process that will provide all stakeholders an opportunity to listen and share their thoughts about the consideration of 8-man football. Here is the process:
1. Athletic Director & Superintendent meet with the Head Football Coach
2. Athletic Director & Superintendent meet with all High School Football Coaches
3. Took all active football players in grade 8 through 12 to the 8-man championship game
4. Athletic Director & Superintendent met with all 8 through 11 grade players by class
5. Hold a player/parent meeting to provide information and answer questions on November 21, 2017 @ 6:00 in the HS Auditorium
6. (TBD) Board Work Session (Take a close look at all the information)
If you are interested, please attend the player/parent/community meeting on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 6:00 in the MS/HS Auditorium. ... See MoreSee Less

I want thank everyone for being patient with the completion of our track. When the track was initially installed the asphalt dimensions in the radius points of the Northwest and the
Southwest corners were shortened. Over the last couple of months, we have been working with several companies including our architect and lawyer to assure the proper resolution.
The resolution included the asphalt company inserting a slab of asphalt, then milling down that slab plus the additional asphalt that had been initially installed. After the milling process was complete the asphalt company laid an additional top layer of asphalt overlaying the existing asphalt. This structural process was designed by an architect from SVPA with the assistance of experts from Midwest Track and Tennis. When this process was completed an additional all weather rubber membrane was added to the track. Finally, the entire track was finished with a black urethane seal coat.
Typically, a track must be resurfaced every 6-7 years with an additional urethane coat that provides the track with an additional 3-4 years of life. This process was completed today and the track must be closed until Thursday for the urethane to cure.
The application of stripes to the track depends greatly upon the weather, so this process will likely be extended into the Spring prior to the track season beginning.
I appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during this process, we all have a lot to be proud of and
can now look forward to the exciting events to come at our beautiful facility.

Attention: New track
I want to apologize for the inconvenience to everyone that takes advantage of walking or running on the new track. At this time the track will be under construction for the next week. Midwest Track will be on-site today and tomorrow resurfacing both the northwest and southwest radius. This application has a 72-hour cure time in which then an application of black urethane will be applied next Monday again needing 72 hours of cure time as well. At the completion of this process the track will once again be open to the public and school programs. We will notify everyone when the track lane lines will be painted, as this process will also shut the track down for a couple of days. Thank you in advance for your understanding. ...
