Playground Structures Now Closedhttp://ask.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/212Playground Structures Now Closed<p>​<font color="#000000"><span style="margin:0px;font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"><strong>School playgrounds are closed for the winter<br></strong> </span><span style="margin:0px;font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">Every winter, school playground structures are closed. Students are made aware of this during school hours through announcements and staff reminders during breaks. This may not be well known throughout the community despite signs indicating that playground structures are a winter hazard and are closed. The Canadian Standards Association Regulations make recommendations for the depth of ground cover required to minimize injuries (e.g. sand, pea gravel or wood chips). These surfaces cannot be maintained when the ground freezes. Injuries from falling would be more significant on frozen ground. We strongly recommend that you do not allow your children to play on any structures while the ground is frozen.<br> <br> </span></font><br></p>
