Job Action Update

The following message is from the Superintendent of Schools, Dave Sloan.

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.

July 3, 2014 – Transportation Fees Update

**** JULY 3, 2014 UPDATE****

SD60 has received word that along with the PRRD, the communities of Taylor and Hudson’s Hope will cover bussing costs for families for the 2014/2015 school year. As a result, the transportation fee for rural families will be put into abeyance for the 2014/2015 school year at this time. Crosstown usage in Fort St John will be looked at in the fall with regards to costs.

After the financial details have been worked out with the local governments, refunds will be made to any families that have already paid fees from rural areas.

It is still important to register your student for bussing so the Transportation Department can build routes in the summer.

Registration forms are available at www.prn.bc.ca/transportation/
