AVID Field Trip TO CSULB
Jackson's New Field
It is our great pleasure to introduce you to our new FieldTurf field. This high performance artificial turf system is designed to deliver maximum performance and playability to our community. The addition of the FieldTurf field will allow us to reduce water usage and drastically increase the available playable hours for our athletes. Per the manufacturer, long term studies have also shown that this high quality FieldTurf system can help reduce player injuries relative to natural grass. We are excited to have this new surface and know that it will serve our community well for the years to come. This field is our field, so we hope that all field users treat the field with the utmost respect and care by following the rules below.
In addition, flavored and/or colored drinks will NOT be allowed on campus. Students may only bring water to school.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

The SCAQMD has indicated to our district that their action plan includes the placement of testing equipment in district property.
