New Glasgow Academy update: Opening date being delayed

Media Release: 
Monday, September 8, 2014

The Chignecto-Central Regional School Board has been notified that New Glasgow Academy will not be ready to open on Tuesday, September 9, as previously planned.

A new opening date has been set for Friday, September 12. This opening depends upon the construction company meeting their deadlines and commitments necessary for student occupancy. We are assigning extra staff this weekend to help the contractors with their work.

The health, safety and security of our students and staff is our top priority.

We will issue an update on Tuesday, September 9th. If the September 12th opening date cannot be met a contingency plan will be put into action that will see students begin their year in an alternate location while the necessary work at New Glasgow Academy is completed.

We recognize the extra burden that this delay will place on our students, their families and our staff.  All parties involved are working hard to resolve the outstanding issues as quickly as possible.
