Use of School Facilities

In accordance with the Board Of Education's Administrative Procedures,  the Abbotsford School District supports the non-profit, community use of schools provided it does not impact school programs and activities. 

 

Booking a School

User groups must arrange their bookings through the School Rentals Office and not contact the schools directly. 

The user in charge of the group must be over 19 years of age, be in attendance at all bookings and adhere to the Terms and Conditions.

Instructions on setting up an account and submitting requests can be found at the bottom of this page.

School fields are booked by the Abbotsford Parks, Recreation and Culture Office - 604 859-3134.

 

Availability

Elementary and middle school gyms can be booked for sport activities.  Floor hockey is not permitted.  
Secondary school non-specialty classrooms, cafeterias (excluding kitchens) and theatres are available for instruction, meetings, presentations, performances & recitals.

Subject to operational needs, schools are available from October to May, 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM on weeknights  and 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM on weekends. 
Weekend bookings are subject to the availability of custodial staff - additional charges apply.

Schools are closed during school breaks and statutory holidays.

Priority is to provide space to non-profit, community groups that offer free to very low cost (less than $5 per session) programs to youth and are run by volunteers.
All non-profit organizations must provide a certificate of incorporation under the Societies Act.
Any group that charges a fee for service and is not an incorporated society is considered a business.

Schools are not available for business or commercial use, or for private functions (such as birthday parties, weddings, funerals) or for protests, political purposes or for purposes that, in the opinion of the Board, are controversial.

 

Processing Times

From July to September, the office receives a large volume of requests from groups setting up their bookings for the new school year, including renewal requests . It is advisable to apply early in July for confirmation by the end of September.   Otherwise, requests are processed in the order they are received on-line.  Processing times will vary based on the volume of requests.  The district does not accept requests that are less than 2 weeks prior to the first booking date.
