CISD HAS CHANGED BOND PRIORITIES
Please sign the petition to replace the CHS Football Stadium turf this year. Now
The recent bond package included new turf on the CHS high school football field - now the word is, “it won’t be replaced this year.”
When the bond issue was presented to the community last year, CISD did a thorough job in laying out all the items that needed replacing, repairing or building. The high school stadium turf was identified as a high priority on that list for replacement because:
A. It is worn out. Noticeable signs of wear and degraded ability to protect the kids.
B. It has exceeded its original life expectation of +/- 7 years by several years.
C. Newer, better and safer solutions are now available.
Once the bond passed, CISD apparently adjusted the priority list. The turf replacement that motivated many of us to get out and vote is now a diminished priority. We need to get back on track – and focus on the priorities as they were originally identified and voted on.
THE TURF MUST BE REPLACED NOW: The football team made it through spring ball with new wounds every day. The healing process is difficult at best because burns get re-ripped during the next practice. And then of course, staph infection is a constant concern. What will the fall bring? Don’t our athletes deserve better?
THE TURF REPLACEMENT IS A MATTER OF HEALTH: The aesthetic properties may be fine – but the real concern is the safety or our athletes from both injuries and infection. Newer solutions provide greater protection from both.
We need your signature so that the CISD school board understands we want our CHS athletes to stay healthy. Let’s show CISD we want our children to be better protected!
