Northwest ISD will open its middle school athletic fields for community use beginning the weekend of April 17.

The fields will be open during daylight hours for anyone who lives inside the school district to use, though organized sports groups will still need to book times in advance, and the spaces will not be available for public use during NISD events or while facilities are undergoing maintenance.


“If you want to go walk the track, if you want to use those facilities, if you want to play tennis, those facilities are available to you,” Superintendent Ryder Warren said during an April 14 Facebook Live presentation.

The district has six middle schools spread across the district in Haslet, Rhome, Trophy Club, Roanoke and Justin. The district’s upcoming bond package, which will go before voters in May, includes propositions that would build a third middle school in the high-growth area of Haslet and would update and standardize middle school athletic facilities across the district.
