They switched from pea gravel to wood chips on the playground at DS' school this year. The first day, he came home with wood slivers stuck all over his shoelaces and his socks (his shoelace was so bad you couldn't tie them, they were so thick). Today he wore shorts for the first time, and he completely shredded both knees at recess. It got him a trip to the nurse and a few bandaids, so I know they know about it.
Supposedly, this was to be safer than the pea gravel...he never came home cut up from the gravel, even after falling off the arm swing bars.
