Elk Island Public Schools and Strathcona County have been working together regarding our new school playground. A collaborative decision has been made to change the proposed location. The new front location allows for a larger footprint for the new playground, increases the play value opportunities by being in closer proximity to the existing playground and offers increased site line visibility for supervision of children during school hours and better visibility of children during non-school hours. Having the new playground situated in the front of the school also allows for easy access for wheelchair accessibility from the existing sidewalk. The school will also benefit from having green space behind the school to allow for free play and for possible future considerations for an outdoor classroom.
