Recently, our school underwent water testing for lead, in accordance with the provincial regulations (O.Reg 243/07). As a result of this testing, concerns were identified within the school. Corrective actions are now in place, and the exceedance(s) have been rectified.
In addition to informing the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, our Occupational Health and Safety Department has consulted with Hamilton Public Health Services to ensure appropriate corrective actions in the circumstance 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 Hamilton Public Health Services.
If you have any questions, please contact me through the school when our offices reopen. For further information on drinking water testing for lead at HWDSB please visit our web page.
