UPDATE:  Power Restored at All South C-K Schools; Schools to Reopen Tomorrow

UPDATE: February 23, 3:00 PM

Earlier today, power was restored at St. Joseph, Tilbury; St. Anne, Blenheim; and St. Michael, Ridgetown Catholic schools.

As a result, the schools will be reopened to students and staff tomorrow.

Thank you to our parents/guardians who responded promptly earlier today, at schools where mid-day power outages required an early dismissal.

Thanks also to the hard-working line crews for Entegrus and Hydro One, who dealt with multiple power outages across Chatham-Kent due to last night’s ice storm.

As always, the health and safety of our students and staff is our first priority.
