Playground Update

As IDPH and state guidelines change, we are working across the district to adjust our protocols for our schools. Students are allowed on the playground equipment in small groups. They will need to sanitize their hands and wear masks while they play. Teachers at each grade level will set up a system to limit the number of students on the equipment at one time.

Our request up until this time was that parents not allow their children to play on the playground after school so that students don’t get confused about the expectations. Since they will now be allowed to play on the equipment during the school day, parents can feel free to stay after and let their children play. Please be sure to supervise closely if you choose to let them play.
