New Half Moon Bay Elementary School Study

In July 2020, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board received confirmation of capital funding from the Ministry of Education for the construction of a 674 pupil place school to serve elementary students in the Half Moon Bay area.
A meeting of the Committee of the Whole is scheduled for December 8, 2020, in order to seek Board approval of a timeline and consultation process to determine the program, attendance boundary, and opening grade structure for the new Half Moon Bay elementary school.  Final Board Approval of the consultation process is scheduled for December 15, 2020.

The school is tentatively scheduled to be completed in time to receive students in September 2022, however, this date may be impacted due to limitations of the current Covid-19 Pandemic.  The school will be located at the southwest intersection of River Mist Road and Kilbirnie Drive, within the southern portion of the Half Moon Bay Community.  The school site purchased in 2018, is seven (7) acres in size.  Site planning and building design work for the new school is now underway with an anticipated start to construction beginning in 2021.

Once approved, the consultation process will commence in January 2021 with the formation of a local working group.  The group will meet over the winter months prior to a Public Consultation Meeting that is tentatively scheduled for April 2021. At this time, all meetings will likely be held in an online format.

Your input is important and welcome throughout the consultation process.  Parents/guardians and all other members of the public are invited to attend the Public Consultation Meeting to provide feedback on proposed option(s) that will be presented.

Staff recommendations are anticipated to be brought forward for approval to Committee of the Whole and Board in May/June 2021.

Additional information regarding the review will be posted over the next several months.  Please check this webpage regularly for further updates and information.
