Community Use of Schools

January 13, 2022 - Update








Community Use of Schools permits will be paused through to January 30th, 2022, based on the Ministry of Educations temporary measures to reduce contacts.








Child Care, 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 to assist in reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission.








Moving forward, we will assess Community Use of Schools beyond January 30th, 2022 at a later date. 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: 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.

If you are interested in renting school space the How to Rent a Facility page of this website is an excellent starting point.
