Update on Community Use of School

The Department of Tourism Heritage and Culture and Education and Early Childhood Development have been working together to allow for clubs to have access to indoor school facilities over the past number of months. We are pleased to confirm that effective April 6, 2021, clubs that offer programs to school age children will be able to access school gymnasium facilities and equipment.

Given that space may be limited, we ask our members to be patient with schools and school district administrators as they navigate many other priorities during this pandemic.
