Water Testing for Lead – Follow Up Letter

Friday, November 17, 2017

Dear Parents, Guardians and Caregivers

As you are aware, our school recently underwent water testing for lead, in accordance with the provincial regulations (O.Reg 243/07). A letter was sent home on Wednesday saying there was a potential concern identified within the school and a drinking water fountain was being removed from service until the second test sample was received.

We have received our second test sample and the results confirm that there is a problem with the drinking water fountain. The fountain will remain out of service until it can be replaced.
