The Northern Catholic District School Board says some construction challenges have come up and the new amalgamated school may not be ready to open in September. The school board will be holding an information and brain storming session with parents on what options are available. One recommendation is to move the students to Sacred Heart School until Pope Francis is ready to open. The meeting will be held on Wednesday at St. Paul School starting at 6:30pm.
