Effectively immediately, the Peel District School Board will be closing all school playgrounds and other amenities, including sports fields, and basketball and tennis courts, on school board property until further notice. Basketball hoops will also be removed from all secondary schools to limit groups from gathering.
Although playgrounds and other amenities are an important part of our school communities, our hope is to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Peel board students, staff, families and community members.
We appreciate your ongoing understanding during these unprecedented times. Stay healthy, and please take care of yourselves and each other.
