It’s a parent’s favorite time of the year, the kids are back at school!  Kids all over the country are back in the classroom learning new things, making new friends and settling into their new routine.  While everyone is worried about getting to school on time, homework, and after school activities, we don’t always think about the kids favorite time of the day, RECESS!  Playgrounds, sports fields and outdoor community areas where kids come together and socialize and play together are a very important part of school.  Recess is a time where they can get their wiggles out, sit and talk to their friends, play a friendly game together, and just take an important break from learning.  It’s important to not forget about these places and to make sure the equipment and amenities are up to par and to code so every kid has a safe place to utilize during the all important break from the school day.
