Reserve your Spartan Stadium football parking spot now

SOLON– The Solon Community School District is once again selling preferred parking spaces for Friday night and postseason football games. There are 49 spots in the lot and 12 of these spaces will be reserved for handicapped parking that will be available on a first come-first serve basis at each home football game for those cars with the appropriate handicapped plate or hanging mirror permit. Of the remaining spaces, seven will be reserved for game administration, with the other 30 made available to the community for purchase.

Solon yearbooks available

SOLON– To 2014 graduates and their parents: Yearbooks have arrived at the high school. Please stop by the high school office during the next two weeks to pick them up. If a sibling or neighbor will pick up a book in your stead, please email Jim Erickson at jerickson@solon.k12.ia.us to let him know who that might be or to ask him any questions if you have any. Due to prohibitive costs, we will not be mailing yearbooks to families who still have an address in the corridor.
