After School Camp Care SUSPENDED
We now have word that Chief Medical Officer Jennifer Russell recommends closure of all daycares (with the exception of a few specifically identified ones to provide care to critical workers). We will follow-suit and suspend care at our facility. This means that the care schedule laid out for families yesterday afternoon will no longer be available effective Tuesday, March 17.
We hope everyone has success as they make alternative plans for their children, work, and vulnerable loved ones.

Update on COVID-19 Protocols at FBC
FBC IS NOW CLOSED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC FOR TWO WEEKS, in line with the New Brunswick school districts closures announced today.
Please support our health care system at this critical time by maintaining social distance and of course washing your hands. The nature of our sport flies in contrast to these measures and FBC recognizes the responsibility we all have in flattening the curve. Thank you for your understanding.
All monthly and annual passes will be credited two weeks and any bookings during that period will be dealt with fairly an promptly.
Given that daycares have not yet been affected by this closure, we are assessing the feasibility of running ongoing day camp for our existing after school families. Stay tuned for more information.
