Adopt a School for the Summer

  • The summer months bring the challenges of keeping our community’s schools and properties safe, clean, free of camps, and kid friendly. In the past, we have had to spend tens of thousands of dollars repairing burned playgrounds, broken windows, graffiti, and other costly damage to our schools. This year, we are asking our employees and our communities to adopt their neighborhood school. By adopting your local school, you can keep our playgrounds safe for neighborhood children and save on costly repairs. monkey bars


    What does it take to adopt a school for the summer? Just keep an eye out every time you pass by a school. Whether you are walking, biking, playing basketball on the playground, or just driving by, stop and take a look at the school property and look for things like; camping, people lighting fires, vandalism, broken windows or equipment, or anything else that seems out of the ordinary.


    By working together to protect our neighborhood schools, we can keep them safe for our children, cut expensive repair costs, and keep our neighborhood schools something we can be proud of.


    If you need to report a crime, vandalism, or any other activity at the schools, please use the contact information below. Remember to always call 911 if there is an emergency.
