Dear Parents and Guardians,
I would like to take this opportunity to give parents an update about the plumbing and maintenance work being done at the school. As you are aware, we have had issues with the plumbing and water over the last couple of weeks. Tomorrow after school, district maintenance staff will be thoroughly reviewing the work done to the plumbing to ensure that we will not have any more disruptions. For now, the toilets are all running and water is available for handwashing. We have secured portable toilets just in case they are needed, and they are located at the front of the school. These will remain locked for the time being, and will only be used if absolutely necessary.
Out of an abundance of caution, we are also in the process of having the drinking water tested to ensure that it was not affected by the disruptions, and we have asked staff and students not to drink the tap water. Until we have positive results from our water testing, we have brought in fresh water for the staff and students to drink. We have more drinking water being delivered to the school later today and tomorrow.
To assist us in making this an environmentally friendly endeavour, could you please have your child bring a water bottle to school tomorrow for refilling throughout the day. It would also be helpful if they came with their own full water bottle from home at the start of the day.
Thank you for your patience and understanding with the situation.
