A tentative agreement was reached between the Nova Scotia Teachers Union and provincial government on January 20. As a result, the Union has announced that teachers’ work-to-rule job action is suspended effective today, Monday, January 23.
While this is welcome news, the transition back to regular operations in schools will take some time.
For students not travelling on buses, morning arrival and afternoon departure times implemented during work-to-rule remain in effect. We ask that students being dropped off at school arrive no earlier than 20 minutes before the start of class, and students being picked up at the end of the day should not be at school longer than 20 minutes after classes end. This would be different for students participating in scheduled morning or after-school programs.
Extracurricular activities may resume, however, this is at the discretion of staff organizers.
The Nova Scotia School Athletic Federation will work with schools to determine next steps for resuming school sports.
We understand this may not answer all your questions regarding this transition period. Updates will be provided either here or by your school as we learn more.
