St. John School Safe for Students and Staff

June 27, 2005 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board continues its inquiry into concerns regarding the roof at St. John Catholic School in Garson. The DensDeck Prime installed at St. John’s School was inspected on
June 15, 2005 and was found to have been manufactured within specifications and suitable for the specified roof assembly.

It was determined that the odour was consistent with the smell of DensDeck Prime after it was manufactured. The slight odour will dissipate over time with ventilation. “G-P Gypsum’s, supplier of the Prime coating, has informed the Sudbury Catholic District School Board via correspondence that there is no health risk involved with the finished product,” stated Dennis Faucher, Manager of the Board’s Facility Services.

The Sudbury Catholic District School Board will keep students, parents and staff informed of new developments.
