Preschool classes began last Monday at the Sunset Recreation Center. Staff has been working this week on transitioning the all youth programs to that facility, Skyler Archibald, executive director of the Sunset Empire Park and Recreation District, said at last Tuesday’s board meeting.

“We will be able to have two preschool classrooms over there as well as our kindergarten classroom two classrooms that are dedicated for that first through fifth grade,” he said.

Preschoolers will have “a little more room to stretch their legs” at the former Broadway Middle School, with the opportunity to use classrooms, cafeteria and gym space.

“The district is really working hard to provide programming during this time of COVID,” Archibald said. “Not a day goes by where I am not impressed by the work of staff in ensuring that we have a safe environment for our patrons.”

The lap swim and other aquatic programs are operating at an 85% to 95% participation rate, he said. Swim lessons return May 1.

The district hosts its annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon at Broadway Field for the district’s community egg hunt. The event is free.
