HCHS Summer Construction and Parking Lot

Parking – West Side of Building (Arlington Street Side/Old Bus Lane) Please do not park in the roadway as this will be used as the Bus Lane for Summer School starting May 29th.
- Blue Unit Lot in the marked parking spaces only, please. This area will be used for pick-up & drop-off for student/athletic events.
- Red Unit Lot (behind the Green House) access via the roadway on West Side of Building.
- Stadium Lot.

Entrance/Exit – The Front Entrance Doors by the Blue Unit (A1).
- The South Entrance (C6) will be accessible until Tuesday, May 29th at which time it will be closed until further notice.
- The doors on the West Side of the building will be accessible with your key unless the custodial staff has closed them down due to waxing of floors.

There will be no accessibility to the building through the 600 Hallway, Band Hallway, Aux. Gym during the construction. Please adhere to the posted signs and barriers if an area is closed off. These are closed off for safety reasons as there will be work taking place on the roof and the moving of heavy machinery and equipment.

This is obviously going to be a change from previous summer months; however, they are working on much needed repairs to the building.

Thank you for your patience,
