A number of parents at Bessie Nichols School have expressed concerns about safety hazards created by temporary fencing erected near the playground by the private contractor responsible for maintaining the school.  I was able to visit the school to see first hand the congestion and the potential hazards during morning bell.

I have shared the parents concerns with the District administration to work towards resolution.  One challenge is that the school administration and District cannot unilaterally act, as the maintenance rests within the contract between the Alberta Government and the private contractor.  I will update as I receive more information.
