No school on Thursday

The BCTF rotating strike will hit Gold Trail schools again on Thursday.

The British Columbia Teachers’ Federation, the union representing teachers, has informed the school district that they will be engaged in rotating strikes and will be withdrawing teaching services on Thursday, June 12.

While school facilities will remain open under the supervision of school district staff, we will be unable to provide students with instruction or appropriate supervision during the strike.

We are therefore requesting that parents keep their children at home on Thursday, June 12. There will be no bus service on these days.

It is the sincere hope of the Board of Education that this dispute will be concluded quickly and that normal school operations will resume as quickly as possible. Further information will be provided through local and provincial media and the district website www.sd74.bc.ca.
