Facility Rentals

As of 3/24/2022, we are only renting our outdoor facilities.

Lexington's gym, soccer field, auditorium, and cafeteria are available for rental by community organizations during times when the school is not using them. To request use of our facilities, please click here and complete the Google form. Facility requests should be submitted a minimum of fourteen business days prior to the desired date.

Please allow five business days for a reply to your request. Organizations must provide proof of current liability insurance, with a minimum of $750,000 general liability and $1,000,000 umbrella liability, with Lexington School for the Deaf, 25-26 75th Street, East Elmhurst, NY 11370 as the additional named insured on the policy, prior to using our facilities.

Lexington’s use of its facilities for school events supersedes the use by any outside groups. In the event we need to cancel, an alternate date will be offered to you.

Attendees may use the bathrooms in the basement locker rooms if needed. Any children entering the building must be accompanied by an adult. Mask wearing in the building is currently optional, but may change depending on local COVID incidence rates. Security guards will indicate if masks are needed in the building.
    Gymnasium
    Entrance to the gym will be through the 75th Street entrance closest to 25th Avenue. Visitors are not to mingle in the building, but go directly to the gym once they have been cleared by security. All visitors must wear masks at all times while in the building. This includes the bathrooms, front lobby and gym lobby.  Masks are recommended during indoor play, but enforcement is at the discretion of the coach. Unrelated parties are to keep six feet of distance at all times while inside the building, including seating in the gym. Frequent hand washing or hand sanitizing is encouraged.
    All coaches, participants and bystanders must utilize the walk-through temperature scanner. Anyone with a temperature of 100.0 ◦F or greater will be denied entry into the facility.

The online form can be completed on a smart phone and then shown to the security guard upon entry. Any “yes” answer on the form precludes the visitor from using the facility.
