Schools Closed to Students for Remainder of School Year

The Ministry of Education has announced that all schools will remain closed to students and staff for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. Students will continue virtual learning during this time.

 

School Permits

To help protect students, community members and staff and reduce the spread of COVID-19, all community use of schools permits are suspended until July 5, 2021​. Please note, this date may be extended. Staff will update permit holders as new information becomes available.​

Staff will amend all current permits to reflect this decision. No fees will be charged to permit holders until school access is reinstated.  

If you have any questions or concerns about your permits, please message your permit staff member through the eBase system, or contact them by email at permits@yrdsb.ca or telephone (905) 727 0022 ext. 2150.

Submitting an Application
eBase allows you to view an electronic record of permit history including requests, bookings, communication with the permit department and permit fees, update contact and online payment information, and view site availability prior to submitting requests.

General Information

Please check the eBase site frequently for updates and messages about your permit request. You will be notified electronically once your permit has been completely processed or if we are unable to grant your request.

Using the credit card option for monthly payments ensures a zero balance at the end of each month and at the end of your permit. You will be charged for the actual usage at the end of each month. This will also result in a quicker turn around in receiving your permit as the postdated payments will not have to be received before we forward your permit to you.

The Board believes that all learners, leaders and community members have a shared responsibility for minimizing their effect on the environment and taking an active role in protecting it. As permit- holders and users of Board facilities, are expected to support the Board’s efforts to reduce and divert waste, and to reduce energy and water use in our schools.
