Swims added at the pool for Tuesday's teacher strike

Due to the teacher action strike affecting schools on Tuesday, May 27, in Williams Lake, the Sam Ketcham Pool is making some changes to its program schedules.

School District 27 has indicated no user groups will be able to use schools on this day, so the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex has added a morning recreation swim, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and an afternoon toonie swim, from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

"Unfortunately, Tae Kwon Do scheduled from 7:30-8:30 p.m. at Nesika Elementary has been cancelled," the city said in a press release.

Rec and Roll after school care at Marie Sharpe Elementary for May 27 is also cancelled and new registrations are not being taken for this day.

Complex staff have notified Rec and Roll and Tae Kwon Do registrants of the cancellations.

The city said If teacher job action continues, the city will ensure that registrants are informed of any program changes as soon as possible.
