ARTHUR J. KENNEY TURF FIELD & SCHOOL FACILITIES UPDATE DURING SCHOOL HOURS:

Community members are not allowed to use school facilities (track, tennis courts, etc.) during the school day or during school athletics in the afternoon.

This is an ongoing safety consideration and it is especially important now, during this pandemic, that our students are physically distanced from anyone using the track or facilities.

This is to provide the safest environment for our students and staff.  As always, thank you for your support of our schools.

Dr. Patrick Daly, Superintendent of Schools
