• During recess the playground is filled with happy students exercising and having fun with their peers. We want to ensure that all our students are safe and can properly enjoy all that the playground has to offer. The following rules are associated with playground use and safety. Please understand that these rules were not developed to cause any undue hardships to the families of Allamuchy, but rather to keep our students safe. In the past most serious injuries were caused by falling on a surface that would not provide adequate cushion.  Our playground has a thick layer of mulch that provides a soft base for the equipment and the necessary safety cushion. In playgrounds that have adequate cushioning the most common cause of injury is due to clothing or outerwear becoming caught on a piece of equipment.  I ask that you please pay close attention to the rule for hoods and cords and keep that in mind with any future clothing purchases.
