M-A High football lights: a permanent fixture?

Original post made on Nov 11, 2009

The temporary lights brought in by Menlo-Atherton High for last week's M-A vs. Sacred Heart Prep football game proved so popular that there is an aggressive push taking place to make the lights a permanent fixture.

How great to allow M-A to have what Woodside and Sequoia have had for years!

At last parents will be able to attend all home games for football, and soccer. Will other sports use the lights?

Are there plans to put in baseball lights as well? Or do they already have those?

What a great way to allow student-athletes to have more "student" time on game days! This seems like a total no brainer.

I hope our neighborhood realizes that the high school was built long before any of the houses nearby.

How great is this for the Menlo Atherton community! What public high school do we know of who doesn't have lights for their football field. I will be writing to the Sequoia Board in support of this idea.

There are those who live in my neighborhood (very close to M-A) that do not relish the idea of numerous nightime outdoor sporting activities at the school. It's not the existence of lights on towers so much as the voice and music from loudspeakers and bands that even during daytime events has been and will likely be especially aggravating if too frequent.
