Update – Moratorium on Facilities Rentals Extended
With the new school year set to begin in the coming weeks, the Vancouver School District will extend the moratorium on rentals of school facilities for community organizations. Existing child care rentals will continue.
School grounds, courts and play structures are available for casual use by the members of the community outside of school hours. People who use the grounds, courts and play structures are encouraged to follow public health and safety measures including washing or sanitizing hands before and after use, as well as practicing physical distancing with people who are not members of the same household. Members of the community are reminded that school property is for the exclusive use of schools during school hours.
