With the school year now underway, Swanton Elementary students will be getting some exercise on the playground during recess. What exactly they will be playing on will be decided as the building projects are finished up.
Currently there is one playground set with one slide and a swing set at the elementary school on Crestwood Drive. Another, larger, playground set had to be removed for construction of the building addition.
New superintendent Chris Lake said he has recently discussed options with Glen Dominique, buildings and grounds director, and elementary principal Kristi Molter.
“We have all of the old equipment stored at the elementary school. At this time we are examining the costs of getting that equipment put back up,” said Lake. “It is on our list of things to do as we finish up the building projects and get school underway for the year.”
