Effective immediately, SD 8 – Kootenay Lake School District is limiting public access to all school district sites by cancelling all facility rentals until further notice, to curb the spread of COVID-19 and support Health Official requests for enhanced social distancing.
These cancellations affect any scheduled:
- School Events;
- District Programs/Events;
- Community (youth and adult) groups;
- Non-Profit Societies
Childcare providers, like daycare centers and StrongStart locations, are run independently. As such, families are encouraged to connect with their childcare provider directly to see if locations are providing regular operations during this rapidly changing global situation.
SD 8 – Kootenay Lake School District continues to work with public health officials and the Ministry of Education on the COVID-19 response.
