No Pets on School Grounds
While we do love pets,
pets are NOT ALLOWED on school property for safety and health reasons.
within School District #23 have a policy where dogs are not permitted
on school property at any time (even on a leash).
is a health and safety issue where the School District must comply with
Division 1, Part 107 of the Workers Compensation Act (W.C.B). By
bringing dogs onto school grounds,
the health and safety issue is exposing students and staff to the
hazards of dog bites, dog fights, and dog feces which has to be cleaned
up by school staff. Even if dog owners clean up messes, the residue can
still be left on the grass where children play.
Therefore, in order to stay in compliance with the Regulation and our
own School Policy, dogs are not permitted on school grounds at any time.
