No Dogs on School Property

March 31, 2016

​Dogs are not permitted on school property at any time, even on a leash.  This is a health and safety issue where the School District must comply with both the Regional District of the Central Okanagan bylaw #366 and Division 1, part 107 of the Workers Compensation Act (WCB).  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.  Even if dog owners clean up messes, the residue can still be left on the grass where children play.
