School Start-Up

Saturday, 20. September 2014 by Andrew James

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students

As you will have heard, an agreement has now been reached between the BCTF and the provincial government.  As a result of this agreement, SD 60 will be returning to normal operations effective Monday, September 22nd. The first day of school will take place Monday, with all schools running their regular shortened two hour opening day schedules.  Full day instruction will begin Tuesday.

Obviously, this year’s start up is unique and there will be many questions. School bus operations will commence on Monday.

Parents of kindergarten students are invited to contact your schools to determine just when and how your students will be welcomed to kindergarten. Each school will have its own introductory routines, programs and procedures, but all kindergarten programs will be offering full day instruction by Friday, September 26th.

SD 60 does not anticipate any major changes to our school calendar. School days will not be lengthened and Christmas and Spring Break schedules will remain the same.  Semestered schools will take steps to balance their semesters to ensure all students have sufficient instruction time. No additional days will be added to the school year. Details on any changes will be made available over the next few weeks.

This has been a challenging time for everyone. We would like to express our appreciation for your ongoing patience and support. All staff look forward to welcoming back students and getting back to doing great work on behalf of your students.

Sincerely

Dave Sloan

Superintendent of Schools

Job Action Update

Thursday, 04. September 2014 by Andrew James

Back to school is usually a time that everyone looks forward to with some anticipation. SD 60 staff have traditionally worked very hard to ensure that schools are ready for students the first Tuesday after Labour Day. Unfortunately, this year due, to the ongoing teacher’s strike it is unclear whether schools will be able to open as scheduled. Members of the Peace River Teachers Association are currently on strike and have served notice that they will not be reporting to work on Tuesday. Furthermore, the PRNTA has indicated that picket lines will be established at all, or most schools, and district offices from Tuesday September 2nd through Thursday September 4th. If these circumstances remain unchanged through the weekend, school principals will be unable to accommodate students on Tuesday September 2nd. No school buses will be running and parents are encouraged to make alternate arrangements for their students.

Like all of you, SD 60 staff continue to hope for a speedy resolution of the current labour dispute. Parents are encouraged to follow local media outlets  and to check the district website at www.prn.bc.ca for updates and further information about when schools will return to regular service. Parents may also check the province’s parent information website at http://bcparentinfo.ca for more information.
