High School Set to Reopen After Explosion in Mississauga
An extra-long weekend is coming to an end for staff and students at a Mississauga high school.
TL Kennedy, which was forced to shutter its doors in the wake of weekend explosion in a nearby plaza, is going to be open tomorrow (Wednesday, Feb. 14).
The Peel District School Board says that Peel staff have worked with the Mississauga fire department and external contractors to ensure the building is safe for staff and students to return.
All dust and dirt has been cleared and air quality tests conducted by the fire department and an external contractor found no hazardous materials.
A fence safety barrier has been set up between the school and the plaza where the explosion occurred and security staff will be on site.
Staff, students and parents should note there will be no access to the school from Hurontario street, as it will remain closed for the time being.
Students and staff are advised to enter the school via Cook Street.
Buses will continue to run using an alternate route.
Police will be on site to assist with traffic in and out of the school. Social workers will be available at the school to support any staff or students in need.
