New Fence on the Playground Rules For all students: You will notice the fence surrounding the playground area located outside of the gym and STEAM lab. If a ball goes over the fence and into the road (on McCartney Street), you need to ask a staff member's permission to retrieve it to make sure you can do so safely. You may not go over the fence to retrieve the ball. If a ball rolls into the small area on the other side of the playground, you can retrieve the ball and bring it back into the main area of the playground. Thank you for your help with this and please let Ms. Adler or Mr. McDowell know if you have any questions!
