Wasn't a safety/health study done prior to contracting to install the artificial turf? If not the staff person responsible should be terminated. And hopefully the school board members who approved it are gone.

It is amazing how much money has been spent/wasted by the district at Hillview remodeling, building and rebuilding the campus over the past nearly 20 years. All at great taxpayer expense and student disruption. More care is needed in hiring admin staff and in choosing qualified board members.
