Composite High School Will Be Open For School Year After Flood Damage

Composite High School will be ready for the upcoming school year.

That’s according to Jennifer Turner, Superintendent of the Fort McMurray Public School Division, who says crews have been working throughout the summer to have it ready for staff and students.

“The project is proceeding as planned and the school will be ready to open for the new school year.”

The first floor of the building was completely flooded during April’s flood and has remained closed to the public ever since.

Dr. Clark Public School and the FMPSD district office were temporarily closed off as much of the Lower Townsite lost power at the start of the flood.

Students will be going to back to the school as of August 31.

The FMPSD, along with all school divisions across the province, has been tasked with making sure several measures are followed to ensure the safety of staff and students.

This includes everyone having to wear masks when physical distancing isn’t possible, placing hand sanitizers at school entrances and classrooms, and grouping students in cohorts.

Families were also given the choice to have their children continue their education online.
