New School Building Update and Plans January 2018: Phase 2 has been approved.  Clark Builders has been awarded the contract and construction is underway.  Although we are expecting construction noise, especially at the beginning when siding is being removed and they are breaking concrete, the construction company will do their best to be strategic about their timing.  The proposed completion date is late April 2019.  Phase 2 will include the Town of Banff’s contribution to expand the new gym (it will be even larger than our current gym!) and a Career and Technology Foundations (CTF) space. Please click here to review the building plans. PowerSchool - Parent Portal We are continuing to work and grow within our new student information system called PowerSchool.
