Gale School-Any updates?

Has there been any updates about Gale School's building conditions? How can we find out if CPS and/or our alderman has fixed Gale School's Fire alarms, Video cameras to record, heat, any lead paint through out the school? Also, why hasn't Cps installed metal detectors or have an actual police officer or undercover cop inside of the front entrance of the school for security?

    Are you a parent at the school? I would think that approaching the school's administration would be the best way to get those questions answered in a more timely and accurate manner. The community just voted to allocate $120,000 for a new learning garden there, and I've been hearing rave reviews of the new principal. It certainly seems like things are on the upswing at Gale!

    No, I am not a parent there but my son has been placed at this school in the Fall. And I want to make sure everything is in up to date on their codes to make sure our children are safe when attending this school. I have tried reaching out to their principal who has not called me back yet. Also, I've called the office & the lady who answers the phone isn't able to answer any of my questions & told me to call downtown to ask Cps my questions & concerns. Sorry but I hope you can understand how frustrating it can be unknowing if your child will be safe at new school. Especially knowing this is one of the highest crime neighborhoods to live in. I wish you all the best with the new learning garden for the community!

Field Elementary- Playground Project

Hey RP Community! Anyone know what's going on at Field? I know they received a Room to Grow Grant for their playground and have started chaining off the parking lot but I haven't seen any movement other than that. I heard a rumor from my neighbor that the project was projected to be complete by June but I'm finding it hard to believe that time line.

Does anyone have the scoop? Thanks!

    Space to Grow reported at the last meeting at Field that construction will not begin until after school is out for the summer and will conclude before classes resume at the end of the summer.
