For the information of parents and students in the Coast Mountains School District:

  1. As far as we know today (at 2:00 p.m.), all schools will be open and busses running on Thursday March 8 and Friday March 9 and next week.
  2. All schools in the school district will remain on the current bell schedule that was introduced to help manage the BCTF Strike.  Only after the Easter Weekend, and after all job action related activity is over, will schools and bus runs return to the normal bell schedule.

If further job action causes additional school closures, we will inform you as soon as possible via local radio and the school district web site at www.cmsd.bc.ca.  Parents will be given as much pre-notice as possible about when the bell schedule will return to a normal one, after the Easter Weekend.

Coast Mountains School District apologizes for any inconvenience this situation may cause to parents and caregivers.
