It’s day three of the BC Teacher’s Federation rotating walkouts.
In our area teachers are off the job Wednesday in the Qualicum District, and officials with SD 69 are telling parents not to send their kids to school and buses have been cancelled.
Teachers on the Sunshine Coast are poised to walk out Thursday.
School District 46 Assistant Superintendent Greg Kitchen says they’re sending the same message; keep the kids at home or find alternatives.
Kitchen says on-site day cares run by private contractors, but the Strong Start Centres, which have unionized staff, will be behind the picket lines.
The Sunshine Coast Regional District rec department is offering a special day camp tomorrow, but space is limited.
