JOB ACTION - INFORMATION & UPDATES
As a district we want to ensure that our school communities are immediately provided with information regarding the provincial education labour negotiations between the BCTF and the BCPSEA - and when we might be able to open our schools for instruction. We encourage you to refer often to the front page of the district website for the latest updates. www.sd41.bc.ca or www.burnabyschools.ca.
The Burnaby Board of Education and senior district staff continue to remind those at the bargaining table that the needs of our students are a shared priority. While we don't yet know when the 2014/15 school year will begin – we know that when it does, we are committed to ensuring that it is a successful school year for all.
Cascade school is committed to providing an environment where learners can develop their individual potential through acquiring knowledge skills, and attitudes that promote adaptation in a rapidly changing social and technological world. Students will be empowered to be independent and self sufficient with the ability to think critically, to communicate effectively, to live life healthfully, to cooperate socially, and to value life-long learning.
Reminder to parents that the warning bell is now at 8:51 a.m., classes begin at 8:56 a.m. and school ends at 3:03 p.m.
