Through the extensive work of the Sherwood School Resource Officer, Deputy John Cameron, and Sherwood’s District Bookkeeper, Glenda Marconett, the school has been awarded up to $30,000 by the COPS Grant through the School Violence Prevention Program.
The money will be used to install playground fencing around the elementary school playgrounds. This is a 75/25 grant where the district will commit up to $10,000 for the project to be completed. Fencing the playground area will help keep our students safer in a contained area and with a barrier from potential outside people and animals.
This project was prioritized as #6 of 9 as an exterior priority for facilities on the school’s fall of 2021 survey. #1, 2, and 4 are already completed or in-progress.
