Land O’ Lakes, FL – (August 10, 2020) – Students and staff at Wendell Krinn Technical High School have a plan to create additional space on campus to help with social distancing. They are assembling picnic tables with the goal of creating three outdoor classrooms and additional outdoor seating for their cafeteria.
“Having additional classroom space outdoors will make it a lot easier to create social distance, and that will create a healthier environment for everyone,” said Principal Christopher Dunning.
Principal Dunning and his staff and students will get a helping hand from Sleep in Heavenly Peace, an organization of volunteers who build and donate bunk beds for families in need.
The tables will be built from scratch, made of pressure treated wood. The project comes roughly two weeks before Krinn Technical High School, and all other Pasco County schools return to class to start the 2020-2021 school year. Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, schools have been working to create a safe and healthy environment for their students and staff.
EVENT: Students, staff, and community members build 20 picnic tables
DATE/TIME: Tuesday, August 11, from 8 a.m. until approximately 11 a.m.
LOCATION: Wendell Krinn Technical High School at 7650 Orchid Lake Road in New Port Richey
PARTICIPANTS: Krinn Technical High School staff, students, and volunteers from the organization Sleep in Heavenly Peace
