Catholic Board Approves School Closure

Issues with a land purchase from the City of Windsor has delayed construction of a new St. Bernard elementary.

The school is to be partially built on Long Point park, which will also be home to one of the new Windsor fire stations.

Despite the delays, Our Lady of Lourdes elementary will still close, with students moving into the current St. Bernard’s in September. “The goal is to be able to look at the school being built with a newly congregated community together,” says Director of Education Paul Picard, noting students will be able to see the new school being built from the St. Bernard site.

Picard hopes the new 475-student school will be ready for the 2015/2016 school year.
