The Quesnel School District will be reopening school playgrounds as of Friday, June 5.
A June 5 news release from the school district states that the plan to reopen school playgrounds is based off of the Public Health Officer’s advice that playgrounds are a safe environment.
According to the release, the playgrounds will be for school use only during school hours, Monday to Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Users of the playgrounds are expected to wash their hands before and after use, stay home if they are sick and not gather in large groups.
“It should be noted that playgrounds will not be cleaned and that residents are using the parks at their own risk. We want to thank the community for respecting the playground closures over the past couple of months. Have fun and play safe,” states the release.
Students in the Quesnel School District returned to class on a part time, voluntary basis as of June 1.
The City of Quesnel announced on June 4 that it would be reopening its playgrounds along with some of its other facilities as of Monday, June 8.
