UPDATED: Flooding closes Golden Horn Elementary School

Department of Education is hoping the school will re-open tomorrow

Golden Horn Elementary School is closed for the day Nov. 27 after staff found flooding in the school this morning.

Spokesperson Michele Royle said students were sent home. The department hopes the school will be open tomorrow but is asking parents to check the school’s website before sending their kids to school to confirm the building is open.

In a Facebook post Monday afternoon, the Golden Horn Elementary School Council said the school will be open Nov. 28.

“The classrooms are clean and safe, and the water (washrooms, sprinkler system) is functioning,” the post stated. “There is still some cleanup that will be occurring tomorrow but there should be minimal impact to the students.”

Royle confirmed the plan is for the school to be open Tuesday.
