I finally got a hold of the head of the ECS school about the playground issue. She sounded pretty surprise at the level of chaos and the inaction of the adults there. But she also sounded like she really wanted to hear my thoughts and opinions, so that was good. I was happy that I had some notes written out, so I could stay on point. We spoke on the phone for 10-15 minutes and I laid out the issues, and threw out some solutions. She thanked me, told me her door was always open and that she intends to follow up on it.
And when it stops raining I intend to go back and watch a few more recesses.
