Community Use of Schools
Grand Erie District School Board’s plan to support the re-opening of School Rentals is based on the need to continually assess the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and ensure that the board’s commitments to the safe return for all students, staff, partners and community is a priority.
After continued thought and consideration, Community Use of Schools will be delayed until October 3, 2021. The priority is to complete the tremendous amount of work that is still left as well to support the transition back to face-to-face learning for students and staff.
Child Care, EarlyON, and Before & After School Programming will be permitted to operate under strict protocols/guidelines. Internal school permits related to student activities will be permitted based on Public Health Guidelines. Moving forward, we will issue a start-up reminder closer to October 3, 2021.
Thank you for your continued understanding in this matter. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Community Use of Schools Rentals department by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone, 519-756-6301 ext. 281295.
Schools provide a safe and supportive learning environment for students, they are also welcoming and inclusive places for community members to come together, volunteer, build skills, access community programs, and become physically active during non-school hours.
The Grand Erie District School Board believes in supporting it’s communities by making the school board facilities available to the public and supports the Community Use of Schools Program that fosters partnerships and community relationships.
