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.
School Year Online Permit requests will be closed to Community groups for the 2014 - 2015 season on Monday, April 6th. Short term or one day event (scheduled before June 13th) applications can be faxed at 905-890-9068, Attention Jason Payne or by email to email@example.com. Applications will then be forwarded to the appropriate Office Assistant for processing.
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. The rental time period for a small group is two hours and for large events the minimum rental time is four hours on weekends. 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.
