An HVAC issue has delayed St. André Bessette school's open house, but it will not affect the project timeline.
Elk Island Catholic Schools (EICS) is in the midst of building the high school in Fort Saskatchewan, which will open in September.
"We were planning on having our open house in April and we had some slight delays, so we'll be doing the open house on May 16," said EICS secretary treasurer Ryan Stierman. "These are definitely just minor issues that occurred and there's not even a chance that there's going to be any issues with the school opening in September."
The HVAC system is an easy fix, it just requires a bit of time.
When it does open, Saint John XXIII Catholic School and OLA are going to be K-4 schools and St. John Paul II will be a 5-8 school.
EICS will make upgrades to OLA to improve traffic flow, as well as make the school more conducive towards a K-4 program over the summer months.
In total, it will cost roughly $30 million to build the new St. André Bessette facility.
