Dear CMSD82 Parents, Guardians and Caregivers:

As you may have heard, a Provincial student walkout being promoted for the morning of Wednesday, June 4, 2014 has received a significant amount of media attention. We are not aware of any specific details regarding planned walkouts at our schools at this time, however, the proposed walkout raises a number of concerns, most importantly, student safety.

While the Coast Mountains School District is responsible for the safety of students on school property, student safety cannot be guaranteed for students participating in walkout activities outside of school property, even if those activities take place during school hours. It is important that parents are informed that these activities will not be supervised by school or district staff.

While we fully respect the voice of students and their legitimate right to share their concerns, it is our responsibility to ensure that parents and students are aware of the potential safety risks as it relates to this walkout. We do not want to unduly alarm parents or students about the potential risks of participating in the walkout.

We would ask that you please have a conversation with your children regarding your expectations as it relates to tomorrow’s proposed walkout.

 

Yours truly,

 

Katherine McIntosh
Superintendent of Schools
