As reports circulate surrounding the pending teachers’ strike and any escalation from the current phase of job action, many students have come to us (Mr. Li, Ms Hari and myself) with questions surrounding possible impacts of a change from the current phase.
Some of the questions include:
Will we get report cards for term 2?
Are Spring Sports going to be cancelled?
What about grad?
Will universities get my marks?
The reality is that we have answers to some of these questions, but can not predict others. To begin I will address the academic questions from above. At the time of writing, it is unclear what will happen with Term 2 report cards. We continue to encourage students and parents to contact teachers for the most update to date information on student progress. For contact information click here.
As for student transitions, we will continue to work with students to ensure that information is provided in a timely manner facilitating students’ transition to Post-Secondary institutions.
Regarding extra-curricular and other school events, we are unable to determine what the impact will be of any escalation from the current phase of the teachers’ strike. As information becomes available to us, we will do our best to keep students, parents and our community apprised of the impact, if any, there might be to school life beyond the classrooms.
If you have questions of your own, please do not hesitate to add them as responses to this post (simply add them in the comments section above) or you can send your questions through Twitter to our account @bbysouthsd41 and we will do our best to answer you there.
Thank you on behalf of your Administration.
