Temporary School Bus Pick-up and Drop-off at EE Oliver Elementary and Fairview High School
The projects at both schools were on PRSD’s Capital Plan and were fast tracked as a result of the of the Alberta Government’s stimulus plan to help boost the economy as announced by the Alberta Premier on July 28, 2020. The projects at FHS and EEO include paving, replacing sidewalks, curbs, gutters, and repairs to bus loops. PRSD recognzies that a summer completion of the projects would be ideal, however the timing of the funding announcement, conditions on the funding, and the required process to secure contractors and begin the work would not allow for the projects to be completed over the summer break. A government requirement for the funding stated that the work must be done within six months.
It is not anticipated that the projects will be completed before the start of the school year therefore alternate plans for school bus drop off and pick up are being put in place. Peace River School Division would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding while working with these temporary measures and we look forward to enjoying these site improvements with our school communities.
