As you may have noticed, our roof has been undergoing significant maintenance and most of the summer. The bulk of this construction is now complete, however, there will still be work completed throughout September.
We understand there will be perhaps one more week of “noisy” work but then the rest will involve finishing and detail work such as replacing roof flashing etc. All of the work areas will be cordoned off with fencing to ensure student and staff safety, and protected coverings are being placed over any entrances/exits into our building when work over that entrance is being done. We do not expect any of the schoolyard to be affected by this work. As well, we have asked the roofing team to suspend work during our outdoor recess time.
Some construction vehicles may be in our parking lot during September and we would ask that families who are picking up and dropping off their children to be mindful to ensure the safety of students.
We are working closely with the Board’s Facility Services team and the contractor to minimize the impact on students and staff during learning. There may be some noise but we do hope that will be short-lived so that classes are as unaffected as possible.
Due to the recent removal of our climbers (because they had reached end-of-life), we are amending our schedules and locations for outdoor play.
· Kindergarten students will have access to the fenced-in play area adjacent to their classrooms as well as the fenced-in area and play structure currently used by third-party child-care provider Frontenac County Child.
· Late primary and junior students will be rotated through the existing climber during recess, and have access to areas of our naturalized playground under supervision.
· Intermediate students will have access to the basketball courts and our naturalized playground areas.
We are working closely with Parent Council to have a new primary climber installed later this fall. More information about the new climber and how you can lend your support will be coming home soon, and is available on the Parent Council Facebook page. We are grateful to Parent Council, our families and the larger community for funding this new structure. Under Ministry of Education regulations, play structures are not funded by the school board or school. In the meantime, and as outlined above, we have contingencies in place to ensure our children have fun and safe places to play and be active during recess.
The cooperation of students, staff and families is greatly appreciated while repairs and improvements to pour building and play areas are underway. Thank you for your ongoing understanding and support.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at the school.
