The Special Board Meeting scheduled for December 12, 2013 will begin at 5:30 p.m. Senior staff will provide Board Members with the public feedback regarding the Catchment Area Review.
On Monday November 25th a meeting was held with TCRSB senior management staff, TCRSB Occupational Health and Safety Officer and school staff to discuss the updated project schedule and any concerns they may have. The major concerns were around the protocol for the asbestos pipe removal and noise during class time. The protocol for the asbestos removal was explained and the contractor is working with management to control noise levels.
An evening session was held with the senior management staff, TCRSB Occupational Health and Safety Officer and the School Advisory Council and members of the public. Similar concerns were raised along with the lack of public communication especially in the early stages of the project. Another concern was parts of the facility being demolished in particular the remaining section beyond the breezeway which includes the A/V room and washrooms. This section of the facility that was initially slated for demolition has been taken out of the project actually some time ago. What is being priced at this time is permanent heat to be reinstated in the A/V room and washroom. There are no plans at this time by the TCRSB property services staff to request capital funds to demolish this wing. The main factor in a decision like that would be future student decline that would warrant it.
Please continue to watch the TCRSB and Weymouth school website for future updates.
