"Wild pigs ravage playground" is the front page headline of this week's Gazette, and yes, they're talking about SFCS. Not exactly the news we'd like to be generating, but it is an informative article. (And ABC 30 was on campus today — watch for their coverage.) The short version: on the Monday before Thanksgiving, staff showed up to campus to find a good part of the field had been torn up by wild pigs. With the help of CA Dept of Fish and Wildlife and the Sheriff's Department, ten pigs were caught and removed from campus. While the field is still in repair, students are able to utilize the playground equipment as well as the top portion of the field that was not affected by the pigs. Thanks to Principal Garagarza for all his work in solving this problem, along with big thanks to volunteers Bob Stark, Dave Lombard and Roy Lancaster, and CA Dept of Fish and Wildlife and the Sheriff's Department, and also Cal Fire who brought in an inmate crew when students weren't on campus to salvage as much turf as possible.
