New track opens at Clever High School and the public is welcome to use the facility but asked to follow some basic rules.

Clever, MO – The Clever R-V School District announces that the new High School track is complete and ready for use.  Although the primary use of the track will be for athletic events and student use, the community is welcome to use the facility when not in use by school sponsored events.

Community members are asked to please use outer lanes for walking and jogging.
