Date of Assessment: January 11, 2022.
On January 10, 2022, Building Services contacted the Office of Environment regarding a leak that impacted the boy's restroom (drywall ceiling and HVAC insulation) across from the gym and cafeteria, staff lounge (HVAC insulation, ceiling tile), and health room exam room (HVAC insulation, ceiling tile).
On January 11, 2022, the Office of Environment assessed the impacted and surrounding areas with moisture detection equipment. No additional areas were determined to have moisture issues. The impacted portion of the drywall ceiling was removed and a contractor was removing and replacing HVAC insulation. Repairs will continue until completed by Building Services and their contractors.
The above actions are meant to prevent the potential for microbial growth.
