LAMAR, MO – It’s out with the old and in with the new at a school in Barton County.
A new surface is being installed on the playgrounds at East Primary School in Lamar.
It’s replacing what has been somewhat of a pain for school officials, not to mention the kids, woodchips.
“The surface is a little bit safer. We’re not going to get the wood chips going inside and out, splinters with the kids. Then another one is the weather, it’s a big one for rain. When we had the wood chips we had setting water, and this should alleviate most of that, so we’ll be able to come out here a little more often.” Says Zach Lemert, East Primary Principle.
The project is scheduled to be finished by next week.
