Rent School Space
The decision to close schools due to extreme weather is usually made early in the morning and communicated on the board's website and through local media. During inclement weather, permit holders should check for updates on our website.
Community Use of Schools
Schools are hubs of the community and a convenient venue for a host of recreational, group and corporate activities. School facilities provide a place to come together, volunteer, build skills, access community programs, become physically active and build strong and healthy communities. Community groups are encouraged to utilize our spaces.
Rent School Space
Space is made available to the community when it is not needed by the school. All new requests are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. If space is required for a school function, an existing permit will be cancelled. Permit Holders will be given as much notice as possible. Every effort will be made to give the Permit Holder adequate notice. A minimum of three weeks notice is required to process a permit. Please allow six weeks notice for larger events requiring use of kitchen facilities.
