Here’s How Playgrounds Will Work for Summer 2020
Parents and participants will see a number of changes to our operations during COVID-19. Our focus will be on keeping it fun, healthy, and safe and therefore will potentially limit some of the favorite playground activities. Playground is geared toward youth entering K5-6th Grade (2020-2021 School Year)

Summer Playground 2020 has a separate registration form (links below). You will not register through Webtrac. Registration is on a first come first serve basis and will be gathered at Parks & Rec. in order of receipt. Payments will be processed the week of June 22nd. When payments are processed, families will be notified via email which site the child is assigned to. All children will be assigned a site by Monday, June 29th at the latest. Note: all sites may not open pending the amount of enrollments.
Each site will have children divided into 2 separate cohort groups. Each cohort group will have between 15-18 children with 2 leaders. Our Site Supervisor will work with our leaders to make this the best possible summer we can. Within their cohort groups, children will participate in games and activities separate from the other group. A key focus will be on washing hands between activities and sanitizing balls and toys used.
Water Day: Each Friday is typically water day at the Playground sites. We were able to get permission from the Health Department to continue water day this summer. Please have students bring a change of clothes and towel on Fridays if they plan to participate. Due to COVID-19, children are not allowed to bring water toys from home. Parks & Rec. will provide toys that will be sanitized each week.
Breakfast and Lunch
Greenfield School District:
Thanks to a cooperative effort with the Greenfield School District Food Service, children attending a Greenfield School District Elementary School Playground Site (Elm Dale,
Edgewood or Maple Grove) will be provided a free breakfast and lunch daily that will include milk. The menu will be emailed to parents as we receive them from the District Food Service. Children are welcome to bring their own bag lunch and beverage if they choose.
Whitnall Shool District: Children attending the Whitnall School District Playground Site
(Edgerton) will need to bring their own bag lunch with beverage daily. No food or
beverages will be provided.
All children should bring any additional snacks and drinks they might need as no snacks will be provided. These will be stored in their personal bin.
