Playground Update

Thank you all so much for your feedback. The results from the survey revealed that parents would prefer to have rubber mulch rather than the wood mulch and poured in place section. Therefore, we are going to move forward with this plan. PTA and School Administration are working with the playground company and the district to schedule installation. We appreciate your patience and are looking forward to a new playground surfacing!!
