Earlier this month Parent Council requested an update from TDSB Facilities Services and our contractor Bondfield on the completion date of our new addition. Due to an unanticipated structural problem in attaching the new building to the old building the completion date has been delayed until late December with students in their new classrooms by early January 2016.
In the meantime, we have been given approval to add another portable to the back yard and other creative solutions are under consideration to further alleviate crowding at Swansea. We have already started thinking about the logistics of moving classrooms once the construction is completed. More details will be shared in the late Fall.
A detailed construction update will be provided by Mr. Salvatore Beltrano (Manager, Capital Projects, TDSB Facilities Services) at our Parent Council Meeting Wed Oct 21 at 6:45 pm in the library. All parents are invited to attend the meeting and ask questions. If you cannot attend the meeting but have a question you would like asked on your behalf, please email your question to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want to assure you that the completion of this project is a very high priority for Bondfield and the TDSB including our Trustee Robin Pilkey and we are eagerly anticipating an exciting Grand Opening in the New Year.
