Doors to Playground 

PDS requires us to use only the main entrance to enter the building. Doors that open to outside (playground, upper/lower gym exits) should remain CLOSED at all times. Students who wish to use the playground during recess should come back through the main entrance – please give yourself sufficient time to return to class. DO NOT prop the door open.
