Our Mission

Save the Field is a coalition of concerned community members – parents, neighbors, and friends – who have established a public benefit nonprofit to act as watchdogs to ensure that the Del Mar School District

  • does not eliminate 50% of Del Mar Heights Schools outdoor play fields in the rebuild,

  • does not unlawfully avoid important environmental review of the proposed rebuild,

  • does not get away with creating wildfire risks and impediments to safe evacuation that imperil our children and community,

  • complies with state mandates for transparency in all its dealings, and

  • listens to the community.


Our mission is to preserve and protect the field and open spaces at the Del Mar Heights School and to safeguard our children and community against a rebuild that jeopardizes our safety and well-being.

The Problem and Risks

The Del Mar Unified School District is trying to push through a development plan that will

  • eliminate the field and open space at Del Mar Heights School by building on top of them,

  • increase fire risks to the community, without complying with legally required environmental review,

  • decrease emergency access to nearby homes and the canyon, according to experts, and

  • significantly increase traffic without studying impacts to the community.

What Can You Do?
