AEEP Playground Use
We are happy to see so many families making use of the playground outside of school hours, and we encourage you to visit during the summer months, as well. Active play is so important for young children. Please just take care to closely supervise your child and be certain that the equipment is being used appropriately (e.g. going down slides feet first, not arms first; not climbing up either the inside or outside of the slide; not sitting or standing on the center of the teeter-totter). We want everyone to have fun AND play safely. Thank you!

For Safety Sake
PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF ABINGTON EARLY EDUCATION PROGRAM STUDENTS:
For safety reasons, we are asking that our children not use the turf playing fields after school if there is a High School practice or game taking place. As we certainly encourage physical activity, you may use the preschool play area after the P.M. PreK session. The children can run on the turf playing fields provided there are no high school students utilizing the fields, or if physical education classes are taking place earlier in the day. Thank you for your understanding.
