The Le Mars school board voted Wednesday night to leave the Lakes Conference. The change will happen at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. Le Mars will be joining the MRAC conference. The Missouri River Activities Conference includes Sioux City North, East, West, and Bishop Heelan along with Sergeant Bluff. In addition, it also includes two schools from Council Bluffs, Abe Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson.
Plans for a proposed new football stadium were also discussed at last evening’s school board meeting. The school board approved the plans to move ahead with a new football stadium project. The new stadium is estimated to cost $4.6 million dollars.
