TDSB has recently confirmed that all of the carpet will be removed from both Equinox and Roden and replaced with biotile. The exact work schedule is still being confirmed; however, construction is tenatively scheduled for Roden’s two connecting kindergarten rooms first. The goal is to complete the first floor, then the third floor, and lastly the second floor. Ideally the work will be completed after school hours between Wednesday and Friday to provide teachers time to put their classes back together again.
Carpet will be cut into small pieces, rolled up and carried out to minimize the dust. Air purifying fans are also being investigated.
Thank you to all the parents, teachers and staff who helped make this carpet removal a reality. Everyone will breath a little easier because of your hard work.
These initial project details may change as this project moves forward. The Equinox School Council will keep you updated as we learn more in the coming weeks.
