Contingency plan for Easthill Elementary
Posted on 04/05/2023

April 5, 2023—As previously communicated, the construction of Easthill Elementary School has fallen behind schedule. Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board engaged in a consultation with staff and families about contingency plan options.

The following is the contingency plan if Easthill Elementary School is not ready for September 2023:

  • Students and staff from Queen Elizabeth School and Queen Victoria School will remain at their respective schools.
  • When Easthill ES is ready, Queen Elizabeth School students and staff will move in, as soon as possible.
  • Demolition of Queen Elizabeth School will proceed, followed by site work.
  • We anticipate reduced yard space and will develop a plan to mitigate this issue.
  • The date for Queen Victoria School students and staff to move into Easthill Elementary School will be determined later, once more information is known.

Updates will be provided when additional information becomes available.
