Vandalism forces Head Start to close its playground to the public

In an effort to maintain a safe outdoor play area for our children, we have no choice but to keep the Head Start Playground locked after hours and closed to the public.

We have made this decision as a result of reoccurring and increasing acts of vandalism and inappropriate use of our school playground over a period of many years.

We apologize to those children and families who did respect our playground, and we hope that by raising community awareness we might be able to reopen our gates one day.

Thank you,

Head Start staff
