Good news from the Sherwood R-8 School District

The Sherwood R-8 School District extremely excited to announce that through the extensive work of School Resource Officer Deputy John Cameron and District Bookkeeper Glenda Marconett we have been awarded up to $30,000 by the COPS Grant through the School Violence Prevention Program to install playground fencing around the elementary 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 our fall of 2021 survey. #1, 2, and 4 are already completed or in-progress. 

Thank you Mrs. Marconett and Deputy Cameron!!!
