New Addition To Day Creek Part One
December 11, 2018
Over the 2018 Thanksgiving Break, the construction of a new sunshade began on Day Creek Intermediate’s hard court. Students were surprised to come back to find the posts up for the new shade structure.
Students attentively listened to the morning announcements to figure out how they were supposed to get to class with this new massive structure in the way, yet the construction immediately caused mass confusion. To avoid the chaos, students were informed that they would have to take an alternate route to get to their regular classes.
So, why the new structures? “We always put up easy ups (and) it’s kind of a pain… we needed more shade out here, and it gets pretty warm,” said Mr. Apodaca.
Although most students were frustrated about the structure, many benefits are likely to come.
Students voiced concern about the newly built structures, that they may blow away in the torrential Etiwanda winds. “If these blew away in the wind, we would have a lot more problems (because) the cement poles are about four feet deep.” So no worries Coyotes, these structures will not be moving anytime soon. Our administrators have made sure the blueprints for the new sunshade and the structure itself was built securely.
