Playground Hours: To ensure the safety of students and staff, the school's playground is not available for public use Monday - Friday from 7:45 AM - 2:15 PM except for Holidays. Kids need to be supervised until 6pm as the playground is used by K.E.Y.Zone, our after school program. K.E.Y.Zone does use the playground from 8am-6pm during the summer as well. Children are required to follow school rules when using the playground equipment. Please contact the school's Principal at 218-336-8875 x2520 with questions. Thank you.
