Power outage at a country school means that the water and sewers will not work. This makes it unsafe for students to attend the school. Safety is our primary concern for our students.
As soon as power is restored, plant operations will check that water and sewer operations are safe and secure.
It is possible that power might not be available on November 18th and on November 19th, 2014.
Stay tuned to local media and school or board website.
Updates will be posted on the school website wat.tldsb.on.ca, the board website tldsb.ca, and announced on local radio stations in the Town of Bracebridge and Huntsville, the City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton.
Families without power should try to find out information from friends and neighbours who might have access to information via generators, cell phones, or other means.
If power is not available on November 19th at the school, the school will continue to be closed.
