Progress is continuing on plans to install a state-of-the-art turf field at Plainview JFK High School in time for the fall sports season.
Oyster Bay town officials have told the Plainview's Board of Education that the turf field is on schedule for installation during the summer and is expected to be completed by the beginning of September, school officials said.
"I am so excited about the opportunities a turf field will bring to the community," said superintendent of Plainview's schools.
The district is holding a special meeting Wednesday night at 7:30 to discuss the new field with the high school's neighbors and to get their input, Lewis said. The turf field will replace a natural grass surface at the existing high school football/soccer field.
Tonight's meeting, to be held at the district's Administration Office adjoining Mattlin Middle School, is open to the public.
