PUBLIC NOTICE - CLOSURE OF ALL SUN WEST SCHOOL DIVISION SCHOOL PLAYGROUNDS

Click here to view a PDF version of this notice.

During this period of school closure and physical distancing due to COVID-19, it is important that all of us take the difficult steps to not expose ourselves and others to unnecessary risk.

Accordingly, Sun West is closing all its playground areas and equipment to the public. This includes slides, swings, teeter-totters, jungle gyms and other equipment. This equipment may pose a health risk to anyone that uses them.

Please do not use playground equipment at any Sun West school until further notice.

It is difficult to tell young people that they cannot play and is perhaps one of the hardest parts of the current requirements to practice physical distancing. We are confident, however, that all of our school families and communities can help young people find other ways to play, to exercise and to learn.

Thank you for your cooperation.
