The District recognizes the immense value of green spaces for our schools, as well as the benefit of these spaces to our school communities. Ensuring our students have safe learning environments, both indoors and outdoors, is our highest priority.
This means a number of our school fields are closed during the summer months. This allows for critical over-seeding and irrigation work to take place to ensure a safe, healthy playfield for Vancouver School Board students for the start of the new school year.
The school fields affected by these closures during July/August 2020 are:
Britannia Secondary / Elementary
Eric Hamber Secondary
John Oliver Secondary
King George Secondary
Mount Pleasant Elementary
Prince of Wales Secondary
Queen Elizabeth Elementary
University Hill Elementary
Van Tech Secondary
