Quiet Area Tree
You may notice that the very large tree in the quiet area is no longer there. The beautiful, old tree needed to be removed for safety reasons. We had some heavy rain and wind 2 weeks ago, and 2 days later, a large branch came down, landing on the fence between the school and our neighbor's property. We blocked the area off for a few days to see if any other branches would fall. Early last week, on a sunny day with hardly any wind, another very large branch suddenly came down. As the area was still blocked off, no one was in danger. We had a tree service come and examine the tee and it was determined that it was a safety hazard and that the children would have to be barred from that area if the tree remained. With safety always as a first consideration for our students, the decision was made to remove the tree, which was done last Saturday.
