Demolition of several classroom buildings at the old Oxnard High School will begin Monday and continue for the next four months.

That means the football field, track and bleachers at the site will be out of bounds for safety reasons during the work, said city spokeswoman Christina Aerenlund.

The land cleared by the demolition will eventually become part of the future Campus Park, she said. There is no timetable or budget for developing the park.

Two buildings and a gym on the 35-acre parcel will continue to be used by the Police Activities League and other nonprofits, Aerenlund said.
