How hazardous materials will be handled and removed

The safety of community members, students and school staff is paramount. This demolition project is managed by the Government of Alberta, who has highly-qualified hazardous materials specialists ensuring hazardous material containment and removal is completed as per strict provincial safety requirements. Any required hazardous material abatement is 100% complete and confirmed prior to the building being demolished.  hazardous waste icon

How the old school will be dismantled

The building will be responsibly decommissioned and systematically taken down. Excavators will be used to demolish the structure and load trucks. Materials will be hauled off site by trucks for disposal from April through June.

Will there be noise and dust?

Any noise will be confined to City of St. Albert bylaw hours. Dust containment strategies are utilized during demolition.

What happens after the old building is gone?

There will be a small landscaped green space in front of the new school. A bus and drop-off loop and a parking lot will be created.

Additional parking spaces for students

We have increased the number of parking stalls far in excess of the municipal requirements.

Will summer school be held at PKHS in the summer of 2023?

No. St. Albert Public Schools offers a combined summer high school. The plan is to alternate locations every two years.

Our high school summer school will be held at Bellerose Composite High School this year.
