We have been receiving enquires asking if our schools and staff will be effected by job action after the Saanich branch of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE Local 441) served a 72-hour strike notice to Saanich School District (#63). This communication is to confirm that classes and buses will not be disrupted in the Greater Victoria School District next week.
If you are receiving this communication from your school, it is to inform you that your school is not affected. All classes in the Greater Victoria School District will continue as usual on Monday, October 28th, 2019.
