STAMFORD - Parents say they are concerned for the safety of their children that are playing on a playground at Northeast Elementary School. The parents say fallen trees from a March nor?easter are hazardous for children.

The facilities management for Stamford Public Schools says the department has been working hard ever since the storm to make sure there are no safety issues, but says there has been a backlog of work orders.

Officials say that an outside contractor will have the fallen trees cleared away by Wednesday.
