Water System Malfuntion and Postponement at Alaqsite’w Gitpu School

During a water testing of the newly installed sprinkler system, a malfunction caused an issue that has impacted the ventilation system. No harm or major damage has happened.

Until the ventilation system is repaired and tested next week, the new extension of the Alaqsite’w Gitpu School cannot sustain maximum capacity. This includes all shared spaces, such as the cafeteria (food services), gymnasium, Methods & Resources, Ceremony Room, and all Mi’gmaw Immersion classrooms.

The English and Mi’gmaw Nursery Orientation Days can continue safely on September 10, 2021, and their start date will not be impacted.

The first day of classes for all students will be September 13, 2021.
