Facilities Services

KPR’s Facilities Services department plays a vital role in ensuring our schools and buildings are safe, healthy and welcoming for all. One of the many responsibilities of Facilities Services staff is to ensure drinking water in all schools is tested regularly, so that it remains safe for students, staff and community members. Every tap used for drinking water in every school is tested for lead, as required by provincial legislation.  Schools on wells also undergo more comprehensive water testing for a much longer list of substances.

See the letter sent to all families in November 2019 regarding water testing for lead. Further information is also available in our Questions and Answers sheet on Drinking Water at KPR Schools: Lead Testing.

In addition, the links to the right publicly report water testing results for each school across the KPR Board.
