Whitehall District School is looking at how it can make a deteriorating play structure at Shoreline Elementary School safer and improve its procedures in providing first aid care when students are injured.
The action is a result of a mother who brought to the districtís attention the frequent injuries to young students, including her six-year-old son, Logan, who have gotten slivers from the aging wooden structure.
Barb Gimenes spoke to the districtís board of education at its meeting last Monday to express her concerns about the condition of the Kidís Space community playground which is used by and maintained by the school district. She also passed to the board members photos of her sonís injury and the portion of the play structure on which he was injured.
