EMSB TO COMPLY WITH SAFEGUARD ORDER FOR ST. PATRICK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

MONTREAL, JUNE 7, 2002— In compliance with the renewal of a safeguard order by Quebec Superior Court Justice Sylvia Borenstein, the English Montreal School Board will keep St. Patrick Elementary School open for the 2002-2003 academic year.

The EMSB Council of Commissioners voted to close the school on January 19, 2000. That resolution still stands. The original safeguard issue was issued on August 29, 2000 and has now been extended twice.

Parents whose children were registered at St. Patrick’s will be advised in writing that the school will remain open in 2002-2003.
