A Milton elementary school will be receiving an additional $1.5 million in funding.

The new school that will be receiving the funding was recently named Rattlesnake Point Public School and will be opening later this year at 1385 Kovachik Blvd.

“Was an honour to announce Milton’s 4th Elementary School expansion today. Rattlesnake Point Public School is receiving an additional $1.5 million in funding to provide 6 more classroom spaces, ensuring that our children’s education will be prioritized,” said MPP for Milton, Parm Gill on Twitter.

This is part of a $22.9 million total investment toward Milton’s future.

The school was named after Rattlesnake Point, which is a park that’s located on the Niagara Escarpment in Milton and is owned and operated by Conservation Halton.

According to the HDSB, the name’s origin could possibly be a reference to a time when the Massasauga rattlesnake was common in the region. It could also be due to the snake-like path cut by glaciers along the edges of the section of the Niagara Escarpment.

The new school is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in September 2022.

The three-story accessible school is set to feature 21st-century teaching layouts, air conditioning with individual classroom controls, a double gym, bus lay-by and a student drop-off area.

It is expected to accommodate over 900 students and will have five childcare rooms which will accommodate 88 students.
