School playgrounds and fields closed to public while in session

We recognize that many community members have enjoyed the use of school fields, playgrounds and parking lots while district school campuses were closed for COVID-19. Please remember, however, that our students have returned for in-person hybrid learning and extracurricular activities. Thus, all of our campuses are again closed for community use during school hours. District tracks and fields are also closed to community use after school hours when in use by student groups/teams or others who have rented our facilities. Additionally, playgrounds at Roosevelt, McKenny and Garfield elementary schools are closed until 6 p.m. weekdays in order to accommodate after-school childcare programs. Thank you for your support as we continue to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
