Kootenay Lake Superintendent addresses start of school year
Editor, The Nelson Daily
Many parents and caregivers have been contacting us anxiously wondering when school will be starting for the 2014-2015 school year.
We are hopeful that our schools will be open on (Tuesday) September 2 and that our 2014-2015 school year will commence.
At the time of writing, a negotiated agreement has not been reached between the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation and the Ministry and our teachers remain on strike.
While we are planning for schools to be open on September 2nd, we also need to be prepared should an agreement not be reached. In the event that the strike continues, we will not be able to operate our schools.
We will continue to communicate via our website (sd8.bc.ca), and we encourage you to listen carefully to the media for any announcements regarding these circumstances.
The school district website, Facebook and Twitter accounts will be updated as more information becomes available.
