High school in Nebraska will use Covid relief funds to expand its weight room

April 5, 2022
The Holdrege district is using $846,000 in federal Covid aid to quadruple the size of the weight room at Holdrege High School.

Holdrege High School in Holdrege, Neb., is using $846,000 in federal Covid relief funds to help pay for expansion of its weight room.

The $965,000 project will nearly quadruple the size of the school's weight room, reports The Kearney Hub. About $846,000 of the funding comes from Covid relief aid.

Holdrege district officials say social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic was difficult to achieve in the weight room because of the limited space--about 2,000 square feet.

“During the summer when we were doing strength training for athletes, our groups had to get very small to maintain social distancing in that space,” said Holdrege Superintendent Todd Hilyard.

The Nebraska Department of Education has approved the district's use of Covid relief funds for the expansion.

Paulsen Inc. is the builder and Wilkins ADP is the architect.
