Facilities & Maintenance

Roles & Responsibilities

The Facilties Department is responsible for all school facility infrastructure including classrooms, gymnasiums, playfields and play structures across the division.

  • Plant operation and maintenance (PO&M) provides for the repair, replacement and renewal of failed infrastructure elements including associated equipment and materials used in day-to-day, routine activities.

  • School facility operation services include the day-to-day running of the school facilities. These services include but are not limited to: energy management; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC); cleaning; inspections; opening and closing schools; boiler operation; responding to daily emergencies; mowing grass; generating work requests to maintenance.

  • There are three main maintenance functions:

    • Regular Maintenance: Generally repairing or replacing building components, equipment or operating systems.

    • Preventive Maintenance: Proactive maintenance aimed at preventing unexpected equipment or building components, equipment or operating component failure; performed on regular intervals throughout the school year, preventive maintenance is planned and not reactive.

    • Emergency Maintenance: Maintenance staff respond to unexpected equipment breakdowns, building component failures, accidental or deliberate (vandalism) damage.


  • Summer care including playground equipment and grass.  Hornet nests are a particular concern during the summer months, if one is sighted, please contact the Facilities Services department.

  • Winter care including snow removal in facility parking lots and bus loops.

  • Contracted Services: Wolf Creek hires a contractor to take care of the facility grounds from May to September each year.


  • Vandalism to Wolf Creek Schools, particularly to the exterior of the buildings (e.g. broken windows, graffiti and roof tops); costs the school division thousands of dollars in repairs each year. 

  • Should you witness these acts while they are in progress, please contact your local detachment of the RCMP immediately.  

  • If you have any information about vandalism that has been done at our schools, please contact the Facilities Department at 403-785-0731 or your local detachment of the RCMP.
