Letter to Glenforest families regarding update on construction

Letter to Glenforest families regarding update on construction

​Dear Glenforest Secondary School Community,

As we prepare for a new school year, I wanted to provide an update on the construction at Glenforest Secondary School. Since beginning the work, the construction project has progressed well with demolition, installation of mechanical systems, new electrical, teacher work stations, and additions on the north and south sides of the school.​

During the summer months, we experienced some delays due to a combination of soil conditions, extreme heat and rain. This has resulted in a delay for the completion of the north and south parking lots. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. Over the next few weeks, here is what you can expect:

  • It is estimated that the north parking lot will be completed by September 8. At this time, it will only be available to Glenforest staff due to the limited number of spots.
  • The south side parking is estimated to be completed for September 21. Students will need to make alternate arrangements to arrive or park at school from September 14 to 18. There will be no parking for students at the school, except for those who require accessible parking which is designated at the front of the school.​

Peel District School Board staff will continue to work closely with the construction company to ensure the health and safety of students, staff and community members, as this is our top priority.

I would like to remind parents, caregivers, students, workers and staff to take extra precaution while walking, cycling and driving around school property and in the community. To help with this, additional fencing and signage have been installed, and traffic calming measures will continue to be in effect.

Should any concerns arise, please contact me at [email protected]. Thank you in advance for your patience and support.

Cheri Riddell
