Playing fields and school grounds are a year-round resource and the Board is accountable for maintaining them properly. As it appears there could be an early spring thaw and fields will look inviting, they must still be protected against damage that could ruin them for the remainder of the year. More importantly, damage to fields and grassy areas can include holes and/or uneven ground, leading to a risk of injury. At W. J. Watson, our priority is student safety and as such, there will be days where we will be limiting the areas students can play on. As the ground warms, and becomes more stable, fields and grassy areas will again be made available for students to access.
If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please contact the office.
