Portage area schools get summer upgrades
Now that August has arrived, kids across Portage are anxiously looking to enjoy their final month of summer before they are scheduled to go back to school.
While they are enjoying the warm weather, the schools they will occupy in September are receiving some upgrades that will make them that much better for the students.
Tom Henry, supervisor of operations for the Portage School Division, said most of the projects happening throughout the various Portage schools would soon be coming to an end.
“Everything looks as if it will be completed by the time school starts in September,” he said.
One project has still yet to begin, and that is the replacement of the drain at the bus garage behind Yellowquill School.
“We’re hoping that the project will get started next week,” said Henry. “It should be completed just before the students at Yellowquill head back for classes.”
The biggest project taking place over the summer has been the installation of the CCTV cameras in Oakville and Crescentview Schools. The two schools are the last in Portage to receive the cameras.
