The schools remained closed, but students at Father Beauregard and Good Shephard will soon be able to pickup their personal belongings that were left behind during the wildfire.
Both schools are opening up their gymnasiums for a couple of hours for the next few Saturdays.
In a release, the Fort McMurray Catholic School District says all items will be bagged, but due to the smoke exposure items in the bag won’t be allowed back into the schools.
If you are picking up items, you’ll have to go through a sign-in/sign-out process as security checkpoints remain in Beacon Hill and Abasand.
Pick up times for Good Shephard School are Saturday, October 15th between 1pm-4pm and Saturday, October 22nd between 10am-2pm. You can retrieve items from Father Beauregard on October 22nd between 1pm-4pm and Saturday, October 29th from 10am-2pm.
