We are excited to announce that the renovation project at St. Michael Catholic Elementary School will soon begin!
In September, 2018, students from the St. John Catholic Elementary School community joined students from the St. Michael Catholic Elementary School and formed a new school community. The school consolidation plan included an addition and renovation to the current St. Michael school that was contingent on Ministry funding.
On Monday, September 16, 2019, the Ministry of Education announced their approval to proceed with the addition and renovation project at St. Michael Catholic Elementary School. This project will include a new classroom space, a new school office, a new library, and three (3) new child care rooms.
You will soon notice activity on the school site as the work crews begin arriving. Construction will commence over the next couple of weeks, and at this time, barring any unforeseen delays, we are hoping that the renovation to the office, classrooms and library will be completed by September, 2020. We anticipate the child care will be completed for January, 2021.
Safety is always our highest priority, and we want to reassure you that students and staff will not have access to any area under construction. These areas will be blocked off and accessible to contractors only.
Contractors will only have access to areas under construction. Every effort will be made to manage noise and minimize any disruption to student learning.
Construction fencing will be put up over the next few days, and will remain in place until the construction is complete to protect students, staff and members of our community.
Please note that further information about outdoor play, morning drop-off and pick-up, and normal day operations will be communicated by Principal Brian Melanson.
Renderings of the completed renovation, including a virtual video tour of the completed project are available at: https://schoolplanning.hcdsb.org/st-michael-project/. Construction updates will also be posted on this webpage as we progress through the renovation.
We look forward to the building addition and renovation of our school!
