Throughout the pandemic, the St. Catholic District School Board has invested nearly $20 million in various school projects and upgrades.
Assessments are also underway to determine the best way to improve air circulation and reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
All schools are getting upgraded air filters, and some are in line for new heating and cooling systems as well as windows that can be opened and closed.
Sarnia schools included in the work include St. Patrick’s High School, Gregory A. Hogan and St. Anne, which have either already received or are getting new windows.
Window replacement and HVAC upgrades are underway at St. Anne and St. Michael, while shell design work has begun at Holy Trinity, St. Anne and St. Matthew.
The work is expected to be complete by the end of this year.
