An unusual argument for indoor recess . . . Centennial, WY
Surely, students in our area are not the only ones subject to the occasional indoor recess. The main culprits here are usually rain or extreme cold - defined as temperatures below zero degrees farenheit for our school district.
The town of Centennial live at the base of the mountains just 30 minutes from Laramie. While photographing the Centennial Elementary playground, I was curious about this sign. Upon closer inspection my curiousity turned to surprised amusement. As a longtime Laramie resident, even I wasn't expecting this:
Oh, my! Looks like more than the children had been spotted enjoying the playground.
I don't know if the kids really had to have indoor recess or not, but apparently recess was not to be taking place on this section of the playground at this time.
Before you have visions of giant, claw traps the could snap shut on unsuspecting children and passers by (as I did for a moment, lol!) below is the actual bear trap. I hadn't noticed it at first...
Oh, the stories the students at Centennial Elementary will be able to tell one day!
