  • Education:questions about high radon levels at elementary school

    Parents came to the Jack Donohue Elementary School gym Wednesday night with questions about high concentrations of radon gas, asking why they heard about it in the middle of the day while their children attended class outside the building.

    On Tuesday, 35 teachers and staff started a work refusal after they were told the Kanata school had radon levels above Health Canada's guidelines.

    Teachers agreed to hold classes outside and the principal tried to arrange to distribute sunscreen.

    "Even though it was a work refusal, all of us still worked all day. We still fulfilled our teaching duties, but outside," said Cindy Wynter-Francis, a teacher in Grades 1 and 2.
