Martha Reid Elementary School


Safety concerns during off-hours?


Martha Reid Elementary is a super school and well run.  However after hours, how safe is the school grounds for our kids? 


The back side where the playground facility is located has very poor visibility from the street.  Given that there is no security video camera there, this area has the potential to be hazardous for unattended young kids.  Older kids have been known to hang out in this back area behind the school near and within the playground facility.  There has been vandalism to the school and playground equipment. 


It is recommended that young kids should not be without adult supervision during off-hours or weekends.  Or, the young kids should be together in a group for better safety.  Don't take it for granted that school grounds are safe grounds during off-hours!!
