VCSC opens elementary playgrounds, middle school sports facilities to public

Local News

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — In an increased effort to allow Vigo County citizens to utilize Vigo County School Corporation facilities, it is now VCSC policy to allow public use of elementary school playgrounds and middle school track and tennis facilities outside of school and practice times.

We’re taking the locks off our outdoor elementary and middle school facilities on July 22, because Vigo County residents deserve to use our public facilities. If we truly want neighborhood-focused schools, it’s important that we embrace our role as a gathering spot for families and neighborhoods. These facilities can play an important role in the health of Vigo County residents.”

Dr. Robert Haworth, superintendent of Vigo County School Corporation

Additionally, the Vigo County School Corporation Aquatic Center remains open to the public during lap swimming times.

For a $5 nominal fee to cover lifeguarding staff, adults have access to lap swimming and a therapy pool with underwater treadmill from noon to 1:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday; from 5:45 to 7:15 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday; and from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday.
