Uncertain start to the school year

Gold Trail School District warns parents that school may not begin right after Labour Day this year.

As of this date, negotiations are ongoing between the British Columbia Public Schools Employers Association and the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation. As a result the start of school this September remains uncertain as an agreement has yet to be reached.

The Board of Education is hopeful that an agreement will be achieved before September and that we will have a normal start to the school year. However, if an agreement is not reached, the startup for the school year will be delayed. School District No. 74 schools will be closed to students while teachers are on strike as staff would not be able to offer an effective and safe learning environment. Please plan to make alternate arrangements for your child/children during this time.

The school district website will be updated as more information becomes available. If you have any questions regarding your child’s education or registration, please contact your child’s principal by calling the school office.
