Distribute Flyers or Other Information in Our Schools
We receive many requests from local organizations to distribute flyers and other materials in our schools. We review requests from community-based, non-profit organizations weekly. If approved, the flyer will be placed on an information table in the lobby of our schools for parents, students and visitors to pick up. We do not send approved flyers home with students. Approved flyers intended for school staff are placed in the staff lounge. Review the procedures listed below or call 558-5532, for more information.
Request Use of School Facilities & Playfields
When not needed for school activities, or closed due to construction, some school facilities are available for public use. Facilities are generally available according to priorities established by the school board. If extra custodial or utilities services are not required, the district usually does not charge nonprofit groups. If the use is for-profit, the district establishes a fee schedule, which is in line with rental of similar privately-owned space.
Please follow steps below:
1. Read guidelines: Administrative Procedure 4260AP
2. Complete form: Permit for Use of School Facilities & Playfields
3. Email to: [email protected] or to the respective school, or submit in-person.
