The Latest School News!
From the Principal’s Desk
Dear Stephenson Families,
The flooded classrooms are dry, heaters fixed and tested, and rooms rearranged. There is some noticeable damage, especially with the floors. Patrick Wolfe, PPS Health & Safety Senior Manager, came out to inspect them. He found that the water had soaked into the floor’s underlayment, causing the floor tiles to come loose. He explains that they are vinyl asbestos tiles but they do not represent a hazard. They are non-friable, meaning that the asbestos is bound up in a vinyl compound matrix and cannot be released unless the tiles are pulverized. He will have a floor specialist working in the morning prior to school and working the next couple weekends until the project is complete.
We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow. Remember it is still chilly, so have the kiddos dress warmly, and in layers if possible. We will most likely have outdoor recess if the temperatures warm up as predicted.
Thank you all for your patience and support during this maintenance emergency.
