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.

All the best in 2014!
