NSTU Labour Action – Information for Parents & Guardians
NSTU beginning strike activity on December 5th
The Nova Scotia Teachers Union has announced that it intends to begin a strike action on Monday, December 5th at all schools in Nova Scotia.
The NSTU has described the strike activity as a work-to-rule: Teachers will continue to teach in classrooms. Teachers have been directed by the NSTU to stop any extracurricular activities like concerts, coaching teams or supervising clubs; field trips will not go ahead. To be clear, this means that all holiday concerts, field trips and extra-curricular activities (whether planned for the afternoon, evening or during the school day) are cancelled as of December 5th and during the period of strike activity.
SchoolsPlus programming will continue during the planned strike action by the NSTU. Community use of schools will also continue, as we are able, for those organizations with signed facility use permits.
Changes to Morning Arrival / Afternoon Departure
The NSTU has also stated that teachers will arrive 20 minutes before school and leave 20 minutes after.
Morning arrival time at every school is 20 minutes before the first bell. Students who walk to school or are dropped off by a parent or guardian cannot arrive before this time. At the end of the school day, students who walk or are picked up by a parent or guardian cannot remain longer than 20 minutes after the final bell. Supervision will not be provided to students who walk or are dropped-off outside of these times.
More details about the impact of the NSTU’s strike activity will be available in the coming days.
Messages to parents and guardians may also be issued via text and email through the Alert system. If you are not yet signed up for Alert through your child’s school now would be a good time to do so. Contact your school office to begin this process.
Please continue to monitor the CCRSB website at www.ccrsb.ca/nstu-labour-action-information, as well as Facebook, twitter and the mainstream media for updates and developments.

Winter Weather Is Coming!
Please read new info on Winter Weather under the tab on the left. New options regarding cancellations from our Board.
FYI- PRHS has just been outfitted with a new entry system- mandated by the CCRSB. Doors will remain locked throughout the school day and students and visitors to the school will be required to 'Buzz In' and stand by the buzzer ( camera) so someone can verify your identity and buzz you in.
Just a note: Julie, our wonderful admin assistant, is only at the school until 1:30 each day. After 1:30 we cannot guarantee that there will be someone in the office to answer the buzzer for the door.
