Students will begin 2020-2021 school year at KCVI/Module Vanier

Final construction of the Kingston Secondary School (KSS) site was delayed in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although provincial emergency orders were lifted in early May to allow construction to resume on the project, the mandatory work stoppage means the school site will not be ready to open to students in September 2020.

Since work resumed on the site in early May, the contractor has been working diligently to make up the lost weeks. The building is nearing 97-per-cent-completion.

Despite this push, which will continue over the summer months, the school will not be completed and ready for occupancy until approximately late November. Assuming no further delays or disruption to the construction timeline, students and staff will move into the new school by the start of the second semester/term. The move must consider the cycle of the school year, and minimize the impact on learning and teaching. We will share information around the timing and logistics of the move once we are closer to occupancy.

In the meantime, students and staff will remain at Kingston Collegiate & Vocational Institute (KCVI) and Module Vanier in September.

The Limestone District School Board of Trustees has approved the reassignment of the remainder of the Kingston Secondary School contract to Corebuild Construction Ltd. effective May 2020. 

Corebuild accepts all rights, liabilities and obligations under the original contract for the project. The project managers, site supervisors and sub-contractors remain the same providing continuity for the project which is nearing completion.

The KSS project is bonded and insured in its entirety.
  
The reassignment is a result of the previous general contractor, Bondfield Construction Company Ltd., winding down its current business operations.













The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
