As many in the community are aware, the Churchill Stadium and Athletic Fields were extensively vandalized twice in late January and again in late February of 2017. Since this time, we have worked with MCPS Security and Maintenance divisions to determine what type of security measures will be most effective and affordable. Additional lighting (motion activated) is scheduled to be installed soon. In addition, we have worked closely with the school security team and Resource Officer (MCPD) to identify potential threats and increase evening patrols These measures have been taken to deter further vandalism and inappropriate use of the facilities at night.
By the time our lighting is installed and the Spring sports seasons end, we will be very close to the end of the school year so the gates will remain closed until the end of the school year.
Starting June 18th through August 9th, the track will be available for community use:
Monday through Friday 6am until 8pm
Saturdays 7am to 3pm
Sundays and Holidays Closed
August 9th through September 5th, the track will be restricted from community use when athletic teams are practicing or competing. Otherwise, it will be available during the summer hours listed above.
During the 2017-18 school year, the track will be available for community use:
Monday through Friday 6am – 7am and 5pm to TBD
Restricted when athletic teams are present and from 7am -5pm
Saturdays 7am to 3pm
Sundays Variable, as staff is present.
This schedule will remain in effect as long as the following guidelines are adhered to:
No community use on school days from 7:00am though 5:00pm and during all athletic practices, contests or any school events.
NO DOGS PERMITTED on school grounds. This includes the track and fields. Dog waste has become an increasing problem for our building service staff and PE and Athletics Departments.
No one is permitted to use the Stadium Field or school equipment without proper approval. The school will issue a permit if approved.
See something, say something. Please say something to your neighbor if they do not follow the guidelines. If you feel uncomfortable, provide information to the school so it can be addressed.
Once again, we are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused while solutions to the issues were being addressed. Together we can protect and preserve our resources for educational and recreational use.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
