For Immediate Release – 06/10/2016 – Water Quality

In the spring of 2016 the Ministry of Education requested that school districts work to ensure the quality of drinking water available in their facilities. Working with Northern Health and an accredited independent laboratory, School District 60 began water quality testing in the spring which found all sites to be in compliance with the parameters for safe drinking water as established by Health Canada.

Subsequent to further testing at all sites after the summer closure period, the district is establishing a systematic program of flushing water lines at sites where water sitting in pipes for an extended period increases the risk of lead exposure to the water system. In the post summer testing, four sites were found to have lead concentrations that had risen above acceptable limits. Flushing has occurred at these sites.

The attached letter from Superintendent Dave Sloan includes the test results for Post Summer Sampling, and Operational Sampling. Additional test results will be published as they become available to us.

The district remains committed to providing safe clean water at all sites for our students and staff.

Shoulder Tappers

For many years in School District 60 there have been excellent partnerships that have lead to great opportunities for students. Connections have often been made through staff learning about students’ interests inside and outside of school. A Provincial program called Shoulder Tappers is helping to spread that strategy beyond SD60.
