Riverside Brookfield High School unveils new sign
Riverside Brookfield High School unveiled a new sign outside the school this week.
The new sign was made possible by a state of Illinois construction grant and donations from the Riverside Brookfield High School Booster Club and Class of 2012. The previous sign was more than 30 years old, with significant structural issues in the supporting concrete pillars.
Instead of manually-replaced magnetic letters, the new sign is wireless and can be updated by computer through the district’s server.
“The sign is an important tool for us to inform parents and the community about events and our students’ achievements,” Superintendent Kevin Skinkis said in a news release. “The new sign will improve our ability to communicate more information more efficiently, and portrays our campus as the technologically-engaged school that it is.”
District 208 worked closely with the village of Riverside to ensure that the sign aligns with all ordinances. It will operate between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. in compliance with village code. The net cost to the district was about $4,000, thanks to the grant and donations.
A commemorative plaque attached to the new sign acknowledges the donations from the RBHS Booster Club and the Class of 2012.
