All School Play Structures Now Closed

Posted On Monday March 23, 2020

To encourage compliance with social distancing measures, School District No. 73 is closing all play structures at school grounds effective immediately.

Closure signage will be installed in the next few days at the play structures at elementary schools throughout the district. The fields and play courts at school grounds are not closed, however, social distancing signage will be posted.

“Schools are closed, our students are at home,” said Alison Sidow, Superintendent. “We are taking these additional steps to limit groups from gathering on the play structures, courts and fields to protect our students, their families, and our community.”

SD73 has been in contact with the City of Kamloops the City’s play structure closure and has been advised that Bylaw Services will be closely monitoring social distancing at all City parks and other public gathering areas.  If social distancing practices are not being adhered to, the District may close its playfields and courts in the near future.
