Testing Continues For Closed Parkview Elementary School

Parkview-front2

Nothing new on Sicamous' Parkview Elementary School.

The school was shut down last week due to unknown health concerns.

SD83 Superintendent Peter Jory says testing continues "Nope. No new information at this time. Tests are coming in one at a time, some of them have come back fairly quickly, some of them take a week or two, and we've actually had some engineering firms do a series of additional tests since last week's meeting"

Jory also notes that some digging is in the plans "Looking at ground water around the building.. so there's a plan to bring in a backhoe and dig up the school property to see if that's the cause of all this."

He says that it's still early to plan out another public meeting on the issue.
