Extra-Curricular Activities Between Schools Cancelled

An important memo from NLESD:

Effective today, Friday, March 13, the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District
(NLESD) has suspended all extra-curricular activities involving interaction between different
school populations until further notice.

This includes regional and provincial sports tournaments, heritage fairs, science fairs, drama
festivals, or any activity that sees multiple school populations gathered for showcase events or

This is an unfortunate measure but a prudent step the District is taking in an effort to contain the
potential community spread of the COVID-19 virus.

For additional information related to the mitigation of risk associated with the COVID-19
coronavirus in schools, see public health information here; Information for Schools.
