January 17, 2018 – Construction Update

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This morning, I met with TDSB staff and Clifford Construction company officials to discuss the annex renovation project, review the incident involving the scaffolding, and consider next steps. While the scaffolding has been thoroughly inspected, please know that work on the completion of the project has been paused until we are certain that it can safely resume.  As well, we are reviewing additional safety measures that can be put in place.  We are expecting the work to resume on Monday, January 22.

Once the pause has been lifted, there will be one more week of additional work, weather permitting.  After that, the scaffolding will be removed and final cleanup will happen.   For the dismantling stage, crews will attempt to do as much of that work as possible outside of school hours. We’ll also have appropriate precautions in place for any work happening during the school day so that student and staff are safe throughout. This part of the process will take at least one week and likely more, again contingent on weather.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
