Roof Construction Project Update

As you are aware, the roof reconstruction project at Centreville P.S. continued over the summer.  Regrettably, due to some logistical issues the project will not be completed as we hoped by September 4. This means that construction will continue during the first part of the new school year.

We are working closely with the Board’s Facility Services team and the contractor to minimize the impact on students and staff during this time. Although construction will occur during the school day, student and staff safety will not be impacted.  

Our contingency plan during this time involves moving some classrooms to other spaces inside Centreville P.S.

Class placements:

  • All grades (except Grade 7/8) will be in their regular classrooms September 4
  • Grade 7/8 will set up in the gym for the beginningof the school year
  • Learning resources and furniture will be moved to their temporary locations
  • Extra-curricular activities should not be impacted
  • Physical education classes that utilize the gym will be modified during this time. Students will be able to access the playground for outdoor activities.

The roof reconstruction will proceed in phases with each class relocating to the Resource Room while work is underway in their respective areas.

While the washroom area is being completed, facilities will be set up in a trailer just outside of the school with separate boys and girl’s areas. Extra support will be provided by the Board to help our JK/SK students during this time.

School staff have been incredibly adaptable and positive about working through these changes, and we all look forward to welcoming you September 4.  While this is not an ideal scenario, we are excited about the improvement this project will make for our school environment, and for our children’s learning.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 613-378-2661 (Newburgh PS) during the week of August 27, or at Centreville after September 4.
