Some would say there is no good time to replace stadium fields because they are in use almost year-round. However, careful planning and significant cooperation between the three comprehensive high schools ensure that the 2017-18 school year will open with new tracks and fields at each of the three schools in the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District.


Armijo High School’s stadium project broke ground in November 2016, and includes the replacement of the field and track. The field has been completed, and the track will be replaced during the summer of 2017.


Construction on the track and field at Fairfield High School is anticipated to begin February 20, 2017, and is scheduled to be completed by the middle of May. During construction, the spring sports that normally use the track and field will be accessing surrounding “general use” fields, as well as the track at Armijo High School. Construction on the track and field at Rodriguez High School is anticipated to begin on February 13, 2017, and scheduled to be completed by the end of May. During construction, the spring sports that normally use the track and field will be accessing the field and track at Green Valley Middle School, as well as at Armijo High School.


All three fields are scheduled to be ready to host each school’s graduation ceremony in June.
According to Superintendent Kris Corey, “The replacement of these fields addresses the number one priority of ensuring safety. This responsible use of taxpayer dollars will improve facilities that will be utilized for years to come.”


The total investment in the track/field replacement project at Armijo High School, Fairfield High School, and Rodriguez High School is approximately $5 Million.
