Work on two high school tracks, an emergency generator and modifications on a grandstand to accommodate the disabled will cost Washington County Public Schools more than $300,000. The Board of Education approved four bids for the projects Tuesday night.

L.W. Wolfe Enterprise Inc. will resurface the track at Hancock Middle-Senior High School for $148,769 and the track at South Hagerstown High School for $166,900, according to the bids approved by the board.

A replacement emergency generator for Sharpsburg Elementary School will cost $24,100, while the bid for modifications to the Boonsboro High School grandstand will cost $34,580.

According to Michael Peplinski, supervisor of operations and maintenance, the school system would like to get the South High track ready for the spring running season. The Hancock track, which is smaller but needs more work, likely will not be repaired in time, he said.
