The St. Francis playground is technically a private playground. I’m not going to close it after school hours, but please refrain from using it during school hours. Our biggest issue is parents bringing 3/4 year old toddlers during afternoon recess (2:44-3:05) and immediately after school while they wait for older siblings. We are staffed appropriately for older kids, but do not have the manpower to add additional staff for non-students. Please keep your non-school kids with you while you wait for your older children to be released.
