School Playground Signs Cause Stir In Milford

Posted: Updated:

MILFORD, Del. - Several misplaced signs at elementary schools are causing a stir in Milford.
 
Signs in English at Lulu Ross and Mispillion Elementary Schools warn that adult supervision is required. But, a Spanish sign that hung right below warned that a permit was needed and violators could face police action.

Officials removed the signs this weekend, noting that they were hung under a previous administration more than a year ago.

They were intended for the middle and high schools, were outside groups need permission to use the fields for organized games.

"Why those Spanish ones were placed at those two elementary schools, I'm not sure," said Milford School Superintendent Phyllis Kohel.  "There's certainly no intent to discriminate against any group. We welcome all of our students to play on those playgrounds."

Signs posted within the school are usually posted by school maintenance personnel. The outdoor signs are most often hung by the company who creates them for the school.

Kohel is unsure if the correct Spanish version of the sign will be created and posted.
