The safety and well-being of our students, staff and school community continues to be our top priority always, more so than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Ministry of Education’s Guide to Reopening schools indicates schools should significantly limit or prohibit visitors to schools.
Due to this expectation, AMDSB will not be allowing access to the inside of our buildings until further notice. We will reassess the inside use of schools as permitted under the Public Health Guidelines and Ministry of Education expectations.
However, the outside space can now be booked for use by organizations regulated by governing authorities. User groups utilizing outside space will be required to provide AMDSB with their COVID safety protocols. As well, user groups are responsible for understanding and adhering to ALL current Local and Provincial COVID19 regulations and requirements.
What is Community Use of Schools?
Avon Maitland District School Board endorse and encourage groups to come together to become physically active, and to build strong and healthy communities within our school facilities.
Community Use of Schools is a Ministry of Education initiative, which supports access to schools during non school hours. To support affordable community access to school facilities the Ministry of Education provides school boards with an annual Community Use of Schools Grant, which boards use to subsidize rental rates for non-profit organizations.
For information on the CUS initiative, please refer to AP 550 Use of Facilities, which includes classification of usage and schedules of fees.
In addition to accepting the terms and conditions detailed in AP 550 Use of Facilities, all users must also acknowledge, review and understand AP 319 Concussion Protocol.
