Facility Use & Rental
The School Board supports the full use of one of the community’s greatest assets, the school district’s facilities, grounds, and equipment. The School Board welcomes and encourages responsible school district and community use of our district facilities, grounds and equipment by citizens of all ages, when such use does not interfere with or decrease use as needed for school district programs.
The health and safety of our students, staff, volunteers and community is Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools’ number one priority. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of PLSAS buildings and fields will look different this summer. We are adapting our facility use procedures to follow the most current Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) guidance. These changes are being implemented to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 exposure while continuing to provide the community with access to buildings and fields. Strategies may change as new MDH and MDE guidance is received.
For the first academic quarter of the school year, we will not be scheduling outside user groups to use our indoor facilities due to necessary cleaning and disinfecting protocols we are implementing to limit the spread of COVID-19. These cleaning protocols are necessary to ensure that our facilities are ready for student learning and use during the school day.
Our outdoor spaces can be scheduled and rented per the guidance we have received by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Minnesota Department of Education (MDE).
We will be re-evaluating this on a quarterly basis given the trajectory of the pandemic and county wide data. As a result, we will be sending out quarterly communications to user groups to provide an update on our ability to schedule and rent out indoor space.
Please note: Weekend and holiday use is limited due to staff availability.
