School Opening Update
September 2, 2016
I promised to keep you informed regarding the opening of our school. Construction is continuing on the building and we are still waiting to receive our building occupancy permit. Once we receive the permit teachers and staff can go into the school and start setting up their classrooms prior to our students’ first day.
The first day of school will be Friday, September 9 for students at Peter Lougheed School. We will let you know if this date changes.
We will continue to take new student registrations at the Area III office located at 4711 Maryvale Drive NE. until our school opens.
Please check the school website for updates on the opening of our school and other related information. I look forward to seeing you and your children on September 9. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
