As you may already know, the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation announced that a second week of rotating, one-day strikes will take place throughout the province next week. The BCTF’s decision reflects a continuation of their job action related to teacher contract bargaining.
Locally, the Teachers’ Federation has directed its members in our school district to conduct their next one-day strike activity in North Vancouver on Tuesday, June 3rd.
We ask that all parents and guardians fully expect that school will not be in session on June 3rd. Please plan to make alternate arrangements for your child/children on that day.
We deeply regret any inconvenience this may cause you and your family. We will continue to communicate any significant developments as they unfold in this labour dispute both directly, and on our website at www.sd44.ca
. In the meantime, I thank you for your patience and understanding-----it is appreciated.
Superintendent of Schools
