Note from Dayton School Superintendent, Jason Hay:

Water Restriction and Sports Fields - The Dayton School District is cooperating and complying with the City's Outdoor Watering Restriction, however we want to inform our community that we are utilizing our own district wells to water our fall sports practice field on the Jr. High/High School campus.  The field needs to be watered to soften it to prevent injuries to our student athletes.  As we near the start of the school year, we also may begin watering the playfield behind the Grade School.  In an effort to share in the community sacrifice and to preserve our resources, we will not be utilizing our district well water for any other watering (lawns in front of schools, other fields, etc.).  Thank you for your understanding.  OUr first priority will always be the safety of our kids.  Our kids, our future.
