Hobbit Hill Expectations
Please enforce this when you are here with your children before and after school hours.
In a nutshell - the Hobbit Hill is a play structure and needs to be treated as such.
The rail is there for protection and is not to be climbed on in any way whatsoever
The rocks are decoration and will have plants in an around them soon. The are not climbing structures.
The slide is for going down, not up and is to be used by people, not objects.
Students should be sliding down feet first
To get up to the top - climb one of the two ramps, or one of the two grassy areas.
These are obvious.
Tag, ball throwing, and other games are for the fields, not the hill
The climbing wall is for climbing up and down, taking care to watch for traffic
The standard rules apply as well regarding rough housing, wrestling, jumping, and so on.
