Playground Boundaries and Hot Water in the Lunchroom

School Boundaries:  on February 23rd Thorncliffe school had a lunchroom inspection.  After the inspection we were debriefed on actions we needed to take to comply with safety regulations.  One was the removal of boiling/hot water and the other was the boundaries of our very large field.  Our  staff met to discuss decisions about removing the ‘blind spots’ on our playground without taking away places to play popular games.  Please find attached the map of the school field.  The areas in red are the ‘out of bounds’ areas.  In daily announcements,  students were supported with the changes and why the changes were made.  Teachers were given a map to share on the SMARTBoards with their students, Mrs. McGregor marked areas with paint and each teacher took their students outside to walk the boundaries.  This is a school and we are all about teaching and learning so there is no ‘punishment’ for being out of bounds.  We completely understand that a ball may roll into the out of bounds area and we would expect that students would retrieve the ball and return to their game without consequence.  The spaces removed make the play area much safer, as students are not playing near openings to the streets or the staff parking lot. 



Hot/boiling water is not permitted in lunchrooms due to danger of burns.
