Information for our school community

As you may be aware, we are in the process of doing renovations in the school to prepare for the new school year. During these renovations, asbestos tile was found in some floor tiles in the building. 

Asbestos in tiles is generally safe as long as it is not disturbed/broken up. Unfortunately, during renovations from June 11 to June 16, some of the tile was disturbed. Air samples were taken and revealed there was a small amount of asbestos fibre in the air. The measured sample amount was 0.01 f/cc (fibres per cubic centimetres) which is just over the allowable limits for clean air. 

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

As you may know, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Ms. Chase, one of our LRTs, holds this month and this research dear to her heart and has worked hard to encourage families to collect tabs from pop cans.

At the end of last year, Ms. Chase launched a fundraising challenge to our Perry families (see attached). If families collect pop tabs at home, or are able to do so, please send them to school at any time for Ms. Chase.

Thanks Panthers!
