New Delia School could open ahead of schedule

·1 min read

Classes may be out for the summer, but work to build a new K-12 school in the Village of Delia continues.

Shunda Consulting and Construction from Red Deer were awarded the tender to rebuild the Delia School, and broke ground on the project in September 2020.

“Delia School is ahead of the initial March 2022 opening date,” Prairie Land School Division superintendent Cam McKeage tells the Mail.

A date for the opening of the new Delia School is unknown at this time. However, McKeage is hopeful a date will be known in early August.

“As of right now, we are waiting on confirmation from Alberta Infrastructure, who are working very closely with (Shunda Contracting) to land on a date,” he said.
