    October 14, 2020 - Playground Use at Elementary School Buildings

    Playground use is restricted to students who are in school and in session during the school day from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. This does mean, unfortunately, that students dismissed at 12:30 p.m. cannot stay after school and use the playground. This is because we do have students who stay until 3:00 p.m. and therefore, we consider the school day still in-session until 3:00 p.m. Students may return to the playground after 3:30 p.m. when it is open to the community.
