LATEST UPDATE January 27, 2016

Water service has been restored to Carmangay Outreach School although a boil water order will remain in effect there, likely for the rest of the week.

Students who had taken classes at Barons School Wednesday will be back at school in Carmangay Friday, where bottled water will be available for consumption. 

Thank you to staff at the Village of Carmangay for their work on the water system and for keeping the school staff apprised of the situation!


Carmangay Outreach School will hold regular classes today, Jan. 22, at Barons School as work continues on the village's water lines.

A boil water order was issued Friday afternoon for the village. By Tuesday afternoon, the order was lifted for the majority of the village. Carmangay Outreach School and residents who live on Whyte Street and the acreages at the south end of Alberta Avenue are still under a boil water order due to a new leak and water shut off.

Bottled water was provided to students and staff for drinking earlier this week. Tuesday afternoon, however, the school was left with no running water, leading to the decision to move students to Barons for Wednesday classes. All but two of the students ride the bus which stops at Barons daily and arrangements have been made for them.

Parents/guardians with questions can contact Principal Fred Jack at (403) 892-9755 or Low German-speaking Mennonite Liaison Worker Dan Doerksen at (403) 715-4549.
