The ministry has also confirmed funding to replace the plumbing at Sidney elementary where lead readings, although within the acceptable limits, are higher.  Attached also is a Briefing note written by our District of Facilities which provides additional information that can be used in your communications with parents.  If you require further information please contact the Saanich School Board.
