     The Mott Hall II recess yard is a complete disaster. Quick and effective actions have to be taken to renovate the yard, which in its current condition poses a serious threat to students’ health, well-being and safety. For as long as we’ve all been here, the yard has literally been crumbling before our eyes, and nothing has been done to fix it. Before a student at Mott Hall II gets seriously hurt, ill or injured, something has to be done about the yard right away.

     One of the various problems with the Mott Hall II recess yard are the corroded and run-down basketball backboards. They are held up by weak and unsturdy long, metal poles, and they literally look like they can come crashing down on a Mott Hall II scholar’s head! In addition, the backboards don’t even have rims attached to them. It has been like this for about a year, and is preventing students from playing basketball at recess. Something really needs to be done about this problem as fast as possible, or else it could lead to severe injury.

      Similarly, the benches in the Mott Hall II recess yard are broken down and corroded. First, a number of the benches in the yard do not even have backs to them. Since students are constantly playing and running around in the small, cramped area of the recess yard, someone sitting on a backless bench could easily be unintentionally pushed off, which could lead to serious injury, especially to the head and neck areas which are very dangerous places to be injured. Furthermore, the benches in the recess yard that do have backs to them are unsturdy, just like the metal poles holding up the basketball backboards. New benches have to be placed in the recess yard soon.
