A HUGE thank you to all of our staff who helped us tape off playgrounds. In addition to our signage, we've taken additional steps to ensure the public does not use our playgrounds. 20,000 metres of caution tape should do the trick! #SafetyFirst

Childcare Survey for Essential Service Workers

The Greater Victoria School District is surveying families in our learning community to determine how many parents and guardians are essential service workers that may require childcare in the coming weeks.

School districts across the Province understand they may be required to facilitate and prioritize childcare services to essential service workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you are an essential service worker, please share your input. We want to hear from you!
