Dear Parents/Guardians:
We would like to provide you with some further information on the work occurring to the exterior of our school.

Renovation work is taking place on the building envelop, which essentially entails replacement work on windows, brick, etc. which make up the exterior of the building. Most of our school buildings of this age may have asbestos located in areas of the school. The asbestos is safe if left undisturbed and if proper abatement procedures are used during removal. As per legislative and removal requirements, an enclosure has been established over the abatement area outside the school and there is no public access to the area; signage has also been posted as required.

The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District has also had an inspection of the abatement area take place by an Occupational Health and Safety Officer of Service NL who has indicated there is no risk to students, staff, or visitors to the school. As you know, this is always our priority.

It is our expectation that this work will be completed in the spring and we will ensure that appropriate precautions remain in place during this time. We look forward to completion of this project and the improved exterior of our school.

Should you have any further questions on this matter please do not hesitate to contact the school administration.

Sarah Osmond
