Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and School Districts are postponing all school-sponsored events involving students from different schools or the general public, until March 23 (or longer as required). This cancellation includes chess tournaments, sports games, talent shows, symposiums, etc. For MEMS this will also include practices. This decision was made in consultation with Public Health and the New Brunswick Interscholastic Athletic Association.
The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development recognizes its directives have impacted many school-sponsored events such as interscholastic and extra-curricular sporting events and other planned activities. Decisions such as these are made in the interest of health and safety.
This measure will be reassessed as relevant information is made available.
