Summer Access to HSD Facilities


The signs read: "Campus Closed." But if you look closer you will see the qualifier: "...when school is in session." And if you look around a little more you will see reminders about acceptable use: No firearms, no animals, and no fireworks!

The HSD wants families to know that outside facilities at HHES, HMS, and HHS are available for your use this summer through August 30 on the following schedule. The only exception is Monday, July 4 when all gates will remain locked all day. 

HHES 6 am - 2:30 pm M-F

HMS 6 am - 8 pm M-F

HHS 7 am - 8 pm M-F

Please note: HMS and HHS facilities are also open on the weekends. HMS gates will be locked all day, but the track and field can be accessed through the 18-21 Transition Program parking lot off of 159th St. HHS gates will be unlocked from 8 am - 8 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Hockinson residents should also be aware that this access is only for recreational and individual/family activities. Organized events, such as:

  • Team (club) practices 
  • Team (club) games
  • Tournaments
  • Sports training or lessons for pay

and other commercial activities must be register through Community Education (website: LINK  or email: These type of events must complete a Facility Rental Agreement and fulfill a few different requirements such as proof of insurance.

This brings us to our final reminder: Be aware that your access might be impacted by an organized event.

Other than these guidelines, we encourage you to stop by any HSD campus this summer to play and exercise. Enjoy!

If you have any questions or notice any safety concerns please contact the HSD District Office at (360) 448-6400.
