UPDATE: After continued thought and consideration, Community Use of Schools will be cancelling permits through to July 4th, 2021. Child Care, EarlyON, and Before & After School Programming will be permitted to operate under strict protocols/guidelines. Our priority in making this decision is the safety of our students, staff and community. The cancellation of Community Use of Schools permits will help reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Moving forward, we will assess the viability of Community Use of Schools beyond July 4th, 2021 at a later date. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact the Community Use of Schools Rentals department by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
