Superintendent confirms no classes next Tuesday in the Cariboo-Chilcotin

School District 27 Superintendent Mark Thiessen confirmed Wednesday, pickets will be up and teachers will be withdrawing services in the Cariboo-Chilcotin Tuesday.

Thiessen issued a parent information bulletin today (May 21), stating he will be directing busses not to run during the one-day strike and is urging parents to keep their children home.

"While schools will continue to be open and principals and vice principals will be present, there will be no instruction," Thiessen states. "For safety reasons I ask that parents keep all children home from classes on Tuesday, May 27."

Also, no programs will be running in the district including StrongStart, daycares or use by community user groups.

Thiessen said he will continue to send out more information to parents as the situation evolves, such as in the event the strike continues past week.
