Rideau Park Update | Sept. 21, 2017


Dear Parents and Guardians,


I have some new information to share with you on the construction going on at our school and our plan for supporting student learning until the construction is completed.


An engineering study has determined that the wood gymnasium roof structure needs to be replaced by a steel structure. The CBE and architect are working with the city on design approval for the new roof. As a result, details on when that construction work will occur are yet to be determined. Physical Education may take place outdoors while the weather is nice or at Repsol Centre.


The flood mitigation work to move the mechanical room to the roof above the band room is delayed due to challenges sourcing the steel columns. While our band room is not useable, band will take place in the nearby Scouts’ Hall.

All of the flood mitigation work and work related to the July fire is expected to be completed in late November.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 403-777-7480. Any further updates will be shared in my weekly Monday message to parents.
