Greetings from the School Board
Dear Hockinson Community, 

Excitement is in the air as we watch our new Middle School growing ever closer to a completed learning facility. This is a community project, and we are thankful for everyone’s support. 

As this newsletter goes to press, the Board is in the process of selecting a new member to fill the District 5 vacancy. Please stay tuned. We will have news shortly. 

Another task the Board is working on is a survey. As you probably know, the Board responded to requests from an active community group and decided to ask voters whether they would support the installation of a synthetic turf field at the High School. 

In February, we received our an¬swer—“no”—but the district is left with a question: what to do now? 

The HHS field has serious mois¬ture issues and is useable for only 20-30 events per year. This means the district often needs to rent facilities for practices and games, and is unable to host community clubs and events. We need to find a solution. 

The survey is online at www.hocksd. org. Please take a few moments to add your thoughts, so we can understand our community’s concerns and desires. 
Thank you all for your support of Hockinson’s schools!
