Update on using the Cardozo High and Banneker tracks

Awhile ago, it was announced that the public could start using the nice, new track at Cardozo High School at 13th and Florida. Recently, some folks have said they haven't been able to because it's been closed. Here's the latest details from the principal of Cardozo: thanks to an anonymous commenter for posting it.
The track at Cardozo is open to the public (mon.- fri.) 6:30 am to 8:00 am. In the evening during the spring it is open for public use (mon.-thurs.) 6:00pm- 10:00pm. On weekends, holidays, and when school is closed the track is also closed. We continue to remind people that the new track at Banneker recreation center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The commenter notes it's too bad that it's not open on weekends. It is nice to know that the Banneker rec center track is always open, however. It's a few blocks to the east, at Georgia and Euclid roughly, next to the pool.

When do those hours go into effect? I tried to use the track twice last week and it was locked up at 6:30pm.

Supposed to be already in effect. If you find it closed, I'd suggest emailing Jim Graham, and letting me know the results!

Are there different summer hours? I had no problem using it all spring, but it was closed last friday morning. I know school is out so am not sure if its open at all.

I went to the Cardozo High School track at 7:15 Wed Aug 25 and it was locked up tight. Who is in charge of the field? Is there a website which list the hours? It is very frustrating to arrive at 7:15 and all entrances are locked. The field is only a block away and the track is much easier on the knees than the Banneker Field track. Why isn't the track available for the students early in the morning and late in the day anyway?
