On behalf of the Board of Education for the Coast Mountains School District 82, I would like to sincerely thank all of our employees for your work and assistance during these unprecedented times.

Coast Mountains School District 82 and our local unions are working together to ensure all mandated safety precautions are being followed and commit to communicating updates to staff, as they occur.

This is a very challenging time and Coast Mountains School 82 is very thankful for your support to contain spread of COVID-19.

The district will continue to monitor situation and will do our best to keep you updated on the developments regarding June employment and compensation continuity prior to May 31, 2020.

Employees who have questions or concerns, are asked to contact their School Principal or Immediate Supervisor for assistance.
