Students return to Oxford school

Students return to Oxford Regional Education Centre (OREC) Tuesday.

Students have been attending classes in Pugwash since the new school year began after the Oxford school, which opened in 2010, was found to have an issue with its interior masonry work during routine maintenance checks over the summer.

Repairs have been completed and the Chignecto Central Regional Centre for Education (CCRCE) says workers were dedicated to cleaning using HEPA filtered vacuums and negative air machines in each work area to prevent dust from travelling through the building.

CCRCE says air quality tests were also completed before staff and students returned.

The Pre-primary program at OREC is set to begin on Thursday, November 8.
