A message from Tom Babits
I’m very pleased to announce the start of construction of phase one of the Prep Learning Grounds. This is the start of the revitalization of the playground south of the Eaton building. Phase one includes the southwest corner of the campus at Lonsdale and Forest Hill roads and the area east of and including the walkway between Lonsdale Road and the Eaton Building.
Construction areas will be fenced off and there will be absolutely no access for the duration of the project.
Staging areas will include the visitor parking spots on the loop and the north curb lane of Lonsdale Road.
There will be no access to the pathway.
There will be no access to the downstairs doors to the Primary cubbie area.
What will this mean?
Anyone walking to the school from the west will need to walk along Lonsdale to the Mara Gates or, from 8 to 8:30 a.m. only, enter at the Eaton north doors next to the science office.
For those who drop off or pick up off the campus, this won’t be possible in front of the Prep on the north side of Lonsdale Road.
The project starts on Friday and is due to be completed by the Christmas break.
If you would like to know any more about this exciting project, please come speak with me at any time. I’d be happy to share more details.
Thanks in advance for your understanding and patience during the construction.
