Currently, all schools are open and our programs are operating as scheduled. Please see the attached school district announcements regarding the labour action updates.
However, read below for information regarding our policy if there are picket lines which will lead to school closures.
In the event of school closures due to strike action (picket lines), all of our programs will be closed. We will provide a “credit” for days missed, and our programs will continue once the schools re-open. This credit can be used for future WACSS program registrations. Furthermore, there will be no staff in the Community Office but we will be checking our messages and emails.
Our Spring Brochure is ready. Registrations are now open for all of our programs. During the Spring break, you can register for our programs online through www.simpleprogramguide.com.
Otherwise, just give us a call or visit our office during regular school hours. If your children attend one of the 5 WACSS elementary schools, you should also be receiving a hard copy of our brochures this week!
