As you are aware, there is the potential of a Bus Driver Strike which is said to begin on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 should Union Negotiations fail to produce an Agreement by the end of day, Monday February 18, 2019.
While we remain hopeful of an Agreement instead of a Strike, we also want to be proactive should a Strike be inevitable. A potential Strike will affect our students who ride Campeau Bus Lines – Bus # 531 to North Shore Public School. In order to prepare we are asking Parents/Caregivers whose child(ren) ride Bus # 531 to and from North Shore Public School, to prepare and organize now, for your child’s transportation to and from school. If you are in a position to carpool or help other Parents/Caregivers by taking turns driving children to and/or from School, this would be a means to help one another and lessen the burden of daily driving.
We will continue to monitor this situation closely with the intent that should there be a Strike and it last more than 2 weeks, we will look into the potential of alternate arrangements for our students’ transportation.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at 705-295-4421 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions, concerns, comments or suggestions.
