Investigation Launched Into Washroom Closure At K-V-H-S

The controversy over whether Kennebecasis Valley High violated the Health and Safety Act after a washroom at the school was vandalised continues at a higher level.

The Provincial Education Department will investigate what happened after parent Blair Surette wrote a letter of complaint to Education Minister Marie-Claude Blais. He says just one washroom was made available to the hundreds of boys attending K-V-H-S and the rest were all locked for 2 and a half days.

Surette says that one washroom on the main floor ran out of soap and toilet paper so it got pretty disgusting. He claims the school may have violated the Health and Safety Act. He also tells CHSJ News Blais, herself, has spoken to him directly about the issue. 

Surette says he has lost confidence in the school district because in his words "Someone's not telling the truth".
