TONASKET – The Tonasket School District has received a $99,000 grant to replace playground equipment.

Money comes from the Healthy Kids, Healthy School program of the state Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Equipment in the kindergarten-first grade playground will be replaced. Existing equipment is more than 24 years old and is showing “extensive signs of wear and tear,” said the district.

The new equipment will be larger and accessible under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Pea gravel will be replaced with interlocking tiles.

School officials plan to replace the equipment next summer.
