Sandwich West PS Open on Wednesday
- clean-up complete -
Sandwich West Public School in LaSalle will be open on Wednesday, February 24th.
A broken main under the building covered floors with water late Monday afternoon, forcing the temporary closure of the school to staff and students on Tuesday, February 23rd. GECDSB facility services staff, along with school custodians and a restoration contractor worked diligently to remove the water and clean the floors.
The break in the main has been closed and a new water line to the school is being installed. Until the required testing is complete, however, potable water for drinking and cooking will be supplied. Washrooms will be operational and hand sanitizer will be provided to supplement hand washing.
The school and student transportation will operate on its usual schedule.
For more information contact Public Relations Officer Scott Scantlebury @ 519-255-3200 ext. 10224 or 519-995-5797.
