Tender closes for 4 modular classrooms in Cape Dorset, Nunavut
Temporary solution until new high school opens in 2019
A tender to design, build and ship portable classrooms to Cape Dorset, Nunavut, closes Monday.
Peter Pitseolak High School burned down in September and its students have been split shifting with students at the community's elementary school.
The four modular classrooms are a temporary solution until the new $34 million high school opens in 2019.
The portables will be located on the Sam Pudlat Elementary School grounds. They may be stand alone units or could be assembled together, and may or may not be linked to the elementary school.
To make it for the first day of school this fall, the classrooms need to be at Nunavut Sealine and Supply Incorporated's warehouse in Ste Catherine, Que., by June 1, in order to be on the first sealift barge of the season.
In all, 115 students and teachers were displaced when the fire destroyed Peter Pitseolak High School. Three teenagers are facing arson charges.
