Recess at Lindbergh Elementary School just got a lot more fun these days. Don’t take my word for it. Just take a look at the smiling faces of the students playing on the new playground equipment at Lindbergh. Those faces say it all.

Like many of the older schools within the district, Lindbergh did not have playground equipment for the children to enjoy during recess. But that changed last week for Lindbergh as it will for eight other elementary locations within Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools throughout the spring and summer.

The new playground equipment is possible because of the voter approved November 2016 zero-tax increase bond referendum. In addition to the new playground equipment, the $235 million bond allows the school district to make improvements to every school building; build four new schools to replace aging facilities; enhance safety and security measures; provide kitchens in six schools that currently do not have them; and provide career exploration spaces in the middle and high schools.
