Dear Parents, Guardians and Caregivers
Recently, our school underwent annual water testing for lead, in accordance with the provincial regulations (O.Reg 243/07).
As a result of this testing, concerns were identified with two food prep sinks.
The food prep sinks both showed exceedances on the standing sample but passed upon flushing the fixtures. As a result, we will continue to flush all drinking water fixtures each day.
In addition to informing the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, our Health & Safety representatives have consulted with Public Health to ensure appropriate corrective actions have been taken for the safety of your child. This includes any requirements prescribed in the regulation as well as any additional actions required by Public Health.
