SHERMAN, Tex. -- Neblett Elementary School is Sherman’s newest learning facility, but some parents are concerned about kids playing outside at the new campus.
The campus opened earlier this year, and while the inside is new, broken glass, bricks, and wood and nails can be found outside.
Despite these possible hazards, school officials say kids are safe and are getting plenty of exercise.
"Parents should not be concerned when their children are playing or if they are receiving enough exercise. We have a gym, and they can still go outside and play on a pretty day. Today would not be a good day," Bootie Terrell, Sherman ISD public relations, said on Tuesday.
Playground equipment for Neblett is expected to arrive sometime this school year.
