School and community officials will speak during the ceremony.

Inaugural dives by the swimming and diving team captains, relay races and a boys-vs.-girls water polo scrimmage are scheduled.

The reconstruction of the pool and related facilities cost about $2 million. It was funded through a financial plan approved by voters in April 2011.

Changes include increased depth, additional competition lanes, an open ceiling, a new ventilation system, a deck lighting system, a scoreboard, signs with school pool records and natural lighting.

The original natatorium was built in 1987.

"We're looking forward to the reopening of our natatorium and pool facilities," Superintendent Jody Ware said. "The athletes have had to practice and compete at other schools so they are all looking forward to being at home again.

"And wellness classes will be able to have swimming, diving, life guarding and other water skills classes returned to their curriculum as well."
