How to Inquire Most facility usage agreements can be easily initiated over the phone or by e-mail. The Community Services number is 313-4710 or e-mail us at CommServices@vansd.org. Once it has been established that the facility requested is available, all the necessary information will be requested and an approximate cost determined. The contract must be signed and paid for at least three working days in advance of the first day of use to ensure that staff at the building is aware of the request. Renter must carry his/her use agreement on site for each use or building access may be denied.

To ensure gym renewal, renter must pay for a minimum of four weeks and may renew up to the last three working days of the current use agreement. All school buildings are available as school schedules permit. Auditoriums open to the public June 1st for reservations for the following full school year.

Supervision Supervision by a responsible adult (21 years or older) is required in all accessible areas of the building. Hiring of District security staff or law enforcement personnel may be required for certain heavily attended events. Failure to provide adequate supervision will be grounds for termination of your rental agreement.

Equipment Any equipment requested must be part of the use agreement. Use of certain types of equipment may require an additional fee. Do not assume equipment automatically comes with the facilities. Equipment requests must be made at least three working days in advance of event.
Cancellation, No Use Days Cancellation or agreement changes must be received three working days in advance of the event. Non-student attendance days are automatically no use days, including inclement weather days.

In case of school or weather caused cancellations, you will have a choice of refund or an agreement extension.
