Schools Removing Swings Because of “Safety”

Richland schools are phasing out swings on the playground citing that they have caused most injuries of any play equipment.

“As schools get modernized or renovated or as we’re doing work on the playground equipment, we’ll take out the swings. It’s just really a safety issue, swings have been determined to be the most unsafe of all the playground equipment on a playground,” Richland School District’s Steve Aagard told KEPR.

The district also cited that pressure from insurance companies over the liability is part of the issue. Some of the swings have already been removed from some campuses and the rest will be phased out.

One parent shared that their daughter will begin school next year and she’s happy with the decision to remove the swings.
