According to Mandy Savery-Whiteway, Director of Education, “Our new Harmony Public School is very close to being ready. It will be an outstanding learning facility. The four-day delay is to allow for the resolution of several construction tasks that have arisen in recent days, for clean-up work to be done and for the learning environment to be set up and ready for students.

While I acknowledge the challenge that a delay in the start of school will cause families and community partners, I want to assure our school community that plans are in place to provide safe, welcoming learning and working environments on September 8. We are providing this information so that families can make alternative plans for the first week of school,” stated Savery-Whiteway.

Student and staff safety and well-being are our top priorities. We encourage you to contact the principal with any follow-up inquiries.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to enhance the learning and working environments in these schools.
