Further to the communication you have received from the SSRSB in regards to the potential job action scheduled to happen on Monday, I wish to include a few more details that are more specific to our school.



Frequently Asked Questions (NSTU) Strike Action

On November 21st, the NSTU announced they are planning strike action beginning on Monday, December 5th.

NSTU Work-To-Rule Strike Impact on Student Supervision and Arrival and Departure Times

NSTU Work-To-Rule Strike Impact on Student Supervision and Arrival and Departure Times.  As you are aware, the Nova Scotia Teachers Union announced that it intends to begin a work-to-rule strike on Monday, December 5 at all schools across Nova Scotia. The NSTU has stated that teachers will continue to carry out their instructional duties in classrooms, but will not continue any extracurricular activities like concerts, coaching teams, field trips or supervising clubs whether planned during the school day, after school or evening.

Keep School Info Updated

Parents, please keep your most current email address, phone numbers and mailing address on file at the school at all times.  In case of an emergency, we need to have your current contact information to guarantee the most  appropriate action.  Without the most current number and address, notification of important  information may be delayed.  To update your information, contact the school office at 902-354-7660, email or write the information in you child's agenda for the classroom teacher.

Report Card information for Parents and Guardians With Children in Grades Primary to 3

This is the second year for Nova Scotia’s Action Plan for Education. It is a five-year plan focused on maximizing student learning and success. A redesigned  curriculum for students in grades Primary to 3 is one of the biggest initiatives for this year. Changes were made to provide a stronger foundation in mathematics and literacy. It means your child’s teacher now has more time to teach these important skills and your child has more time to learn.
