Ventilation systems: documentation for each school

When it comes to working to keep our schools as safe as possible, there are many layers of protocols and practices that are working together. One of the measures we have in place are our ventilation systems, that are being careful kept in good working order, to help increase the amount of clean air entering our schools and classrooms.

Our Facilities team has been working exceptionally hard to make sure our schools are maximizing our systems at each site. Here are some things to know about ventilation in New Westminster schools:

  • Thanks to the newer construction of many of our New Westminster schools, in collaboration with proactive years of upgrades to others, we are meeting or exceeding the recommended standards wherever possible.
  • All filters – at every school and site – were replaced over the summer and will be replaced on a regular schedule throughout the year.
  • Our Facilities team has ensured that we continue to run our ventilation at full capacity, as we maximize the circulation of clean air at each school.
  • And we have added portable HEPA filter units to every portable in the District.

Below are completed overviews of the systems at each school (updated April 2022).
