To protect the health and safety of Wing Lake students and our playground guests, Wing Lake Developmental Center is enacting and enforcing a new No Pets Rule on school grounds. Service animals are allowed. Please also remember that all BHS school properties are drug free zones, which includes tobacco products (Board Policy 6006). Please do not smoke or use tabacco products of any kind on school grounds.
In recent months, Wing Lake has had issues with animal waste, cigarettes, broken glass, and other items being left on the playground, as well as animals charging students and guests. These are safety concerns for our community members and students who utilize the playground.
Wing Lake services more than 110 severely medically compromised students with significant cognitive and multiple disabilities. This means that inedible items become health hazards for our students. Maintaining a safe, clean, and well-equipped playground is of utmost importance to our students.
Together, by following Board Policy 6006 and not allowing pets on Wing Lake property, we can continue to share this great school space with our community. Please help us keep students safe and our grant-funded playground well-kept.
