satellite closed today

February 23rd, 2011 by admin Leave a reply »

There was an incident at the Satellite Site this morning, which resulted in the building being closed for the day.

The elevator motor continued to run overnight causing a fair amount of smoke to build up in the elevator room which eventually  filtered through the rest of the building.

The fire department was called in and they suggested that the building be closed.

The Toronto District School board environmental team was also called into assess the air quality. It was under their advisement that the school was closed.

Extensive air quality testing will be undertaken through out the day, and the daycare will be advised as to the status of the building for tomorrow.

We recognize the hardship this places on our families and children, and we thank you for your cooperation and understanding.  Please check back for further updates.
