We are pleased to announce that Canyon High School will be receiving an All Weather Track and Turf Field! At the end of the 2017-18 school year the Orange Unified School District (OUSD) school board and superintendent approved the addition of all weather track & turf fields at three OUSD High Schools: Canyon, Villa Park and Orange, in addition to the Fred Kelly Stadium renovation. The current Canyon High School Track & Field will be closed to the public starting July 7, 2018 until completion of phase 1 of this project. The anticipated completion date is no later than January 1st, 2019. During this project the back trail connecting Santa Ana Canyon Road and Canyon High School will be closed for students who previously used this as an access point to campus. We want to emphasize that Measure “S” funds will not be used to support this project.
Fred Kelly Stadium will also be renovated beginning after the 2018 Comanche football season and is anticipated to reopen in March 2020. The Canyon High School Athletic Department and Administration would like to thank the OUSD School Board and District Personnel for their commitment to providing Canyon students and student-athletes with a safe and competitive facility that our community can be proud of. Upon completion of Canyon’s All Weather Track & Turf Field, sports such as soccer, track & field, lacrosse, as well as lower level football contests will be brought back into our Anaheim Hills community. We are excited and will be inviting everyone out to a ribbon cutting ceremony and community event. The date will be announced as we get closer to the completion of this facility.
The Canyon High School Foundation has also committed to raise funds to improve this already substantial upgrade with the addition of bleachers that will further enhance the experience of “The Tribe” (student spectators), alumni, parents, staff and community members. A special thanks to the Ebell Club of Canyon Hills who has already generously donated $2000 towards the addition of bleachers. Bleacher installation at Canyon’s future All Weather Track and Turf Field is anticipated for summer of 2019. The Canyon High School Foundation has also raised over $160,000 toward its $800,000 goal of renovating the Canyon Gymnasium. Thank you to our generous and outstanding community for helping us make Canyon High School look like the amazing school we already know it is!
