Ju­nior high get­ting rea­dy for PETES over­flow

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

West­wood Jr. High’s prin­ci­pal says the school will be rea­dy to ac­com­mo­date 120 grades 5 and 6 stu­dents from Pierre El­liott Tru­deau Ele­men­ta­ry School next year.

The St. La­zare ju­nior high, home to grades 7 and 8 stu­dents, will ac­com­mo­date an over­flow from PETES in Vau­dreuilDo­rion be­gin­ning next Sep­tem­ber.

Prin­ci­pal Hans Bulow said ad­mi­nis­tra­tors from PETES re­cent­ly vi­si­ted the school, while he will al­so meet with PETES pa­rents to ans­wer ques­tions or ad­dress any concerns. A date for the mee­ting has not been set. Though ma­ny de­tails of the trans­fer still need to be wor­ked out, Bulow said he al­so wants to en­sure thatWest­wood stu­dents do not lose ser­vices or ac­ti­vi­ties be­cause of the over­flow.

Over­crow­ding at Vau­dreuil-Sou­langes schools with the Les­ter B. Pear­son School Board is ex­pec­ted to ease if the board can be­gin construc­tion on a long awai­ted new English ele­men­ta­ry school.
