Playground Safety

  • Durham Public Schools invests substantial sums of money in playground equipment and has a plan in place for regular updates and replacement.  Playground developments and improvements undergo a stringent approval process to make sure that students stay safe while playing.  For that reason, anyone interested in trying to make improvements or additions to school playgrounds should first check with the school’s principal. Individual schools are responsible for regular upkeep and keeping equipment clean. If you notice a problem with a playground and/or the equipment, please report it to Maintenance Services at 919-560-3827.
