Menominee Elementary School students will soon be able to enjoy state-of-the art playground equipment that meets all of the standards outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act. The school’s PTO has been raising funds for the past decade to buy larger, more engaging equipment. Principal Steven Boyer says the new playground will sit atop rubber tiles that all students will be able to access. It also provides a number of activities that accommodate students with disabilities.
The new equipment carries a price tag of nearly $28,000. It will be installed in July or early August. First existing mulch needs to be removed and the land on which it will sit needs to be excavated. It should be in place by the time school starts in the fall.
