All classes at CCRSB schools cancelled on Friday, February 17, 2017

Dear parents, guardians and students:

Earlier today, the Nova Scotia Teacher’s Union announced that all members will be participating in a one-day, province-wide walkout on Friday, February 17, 2017. This strike action by the NSTU means that all classes are cancelled for students on Friday. (As a reminder, CCRSB covers the counties of Pictou, Cumberland and Colchester, as well as the Municipality of East Hants.)

The following programs are also cancelled for Friday:

  • The Four Plus Program in New Glasgow 
  • Early Years centres 
  • SchoolsPlus programming at school sites 

Community-use of school facilities will go ahead, as planned, on Friday evening. 

Should the situation change in anyway, we will work to communicate to you as quickly as possible. It is important to continue to check the school board website at NSTU Labour Action, Facebook and twitter (@CCRSB_Official) for updates.
