Rideau Park School


Oct. 31, 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The following is provided as an update to the flood mitigation and fire repairs work being undertaken at Rideau Park School.

By early November, we expect landscaping in front of the school along with skateboard and scooter racks to be in place. The playground and SportCourt should also be completed and ready for use. There is a small area of retaining wall at the south end of the school that will need to be completed in the spring; this area will remain fenced off until the work is completed.

The permanent parking lot is anticipated to be completed by the end of November. Underground storm sewer connections related to the gymnasium rebuild following the fire have resulted in a delay, however we are working closely with our partners to ensure the lot is ready for use by the end of November.

The band room is progressing and should be ready by mid-November. The nearby Scouts’ Hall will continue to be used for this purpose until such time as the band room is deemed ready for students and staff. Work on the gymnasium is also advancing but not as rapidly as originally anticipated due to the need to replace the existing wood structure with a steel structure. Expected to be completed by late December, students will soon benefit from the completed SportCourt as well as the Repsol Sport Centre for their physical education.

We are working closely with the architect, project manager and general contractor to accelerate the work where possible. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school Principal Judi Hadden at or 403-777-7480.
