SKATEBOARDERS GET A WARNING

Pioneer School District leaders have warned skateboarders to be more careful on the school grounds.

"If skateboarders are going to use district property, they need to act responsibly," said Jeffrey Bowen, school superintendent. "It is unacceptable for them to move or damage tables, benches and bike racks."

With the arrival of spring, Pioneer officials reminded students that no skateboarding is allowed on campus during school hours or near buses dropping off or boarding students. School officials said skateboarders often cause problems by choosing areas heavily used by pedestrians or motorists.

If the problem continues, the district might consider policy changes and greater enforcement, school officials warned.

They also said parents should monitor how and where their children use skateboards and encouraged skateboarders to wear protective gear.

The district, officials noted, owns several pieces of skate park equipment if any local government or community group is willing to set up such a facility.
