Vilonia Primary School makes improvements with fences, play areas

LINDA HICKS PHOTO Daniel Jones with Conway Fence Company, digging out for fence poles, last week at the Vilonia Primary School in the heat.

Security fences, cameras and soft rubber mulch are the topics of discussion at the Vilonia Primary School.


Last week, black mulch was going down, closing some of the play areas.

Students spent some of the week playing inside.

Also, fences were being installed near the saferoom as well as leading to the music and art rooms and into the playground.

“We are always looking to keep our campus safer,” said Andy Pennington, assistant principal.

“These projects are allowing us to do it.”

The school began the year, Pennington said, with a new camera system with close to 40 cameras providing extra eyes on the campus.

Last year, he said, there were eight.

“We are feeling pretty good about all aspects,” he concluded.

“We keep our eyes open for new ideas.”
