Community Use of Schools

Weekday evening rental bookings are automatically cancelled when schools are closed during the day due to inclement weather.

For Weekend Tournament bookings, school closure and subsequent rental cancellations are at the discretion of the Director of Education and are done so before 7am. Every effort will be made to co-ordinate snow removal and school opening for these events, however in severe instances, opening may be delayed or cancelled.
