Hello B&A Families;
The latest update from our Thames Valley representatives is that during the potential CUPE full withdrawal of services as of Monday, October 7, 2019, schools will be closed to students. Before and After School programs will not operate as students will not be in the schools.
We will continue to monitor media sources over the weekend and ask that our B&A families do as well. Thames Valley has indicated they will communicate with families as quickly as possible when students may return to class. When they give the directive that the schools are open we will resume Before and After School Programming.

Re: CUPE Pending Strike
Hello B&A Families:
We have received word from our Thames Valley representatives of the CUPE Full Withdrawal of services effective Monday, October 7, 2019. This unfortunately will affect our Before and After School Programs.
Due to this school closure we must cancel Before and After care as well as the PA Day, which was scheduled for Friday, October 25, 2019. We are advising our parents and guardians to consider alternate arrangements for students during this time.
Many people have been asking about refunds and of course we will do this for our families. We will monitor the days of this strike and a Pro Rated credit will be applied to your November bill. We are hopeful that the strike can come to a mutual conclusion quickly, but in the case that it extends past October we will process refunds for October.
We continue to evaluate the situation and will provide updates to you as soon as we have pertinent information.
We will continue to provide Before and After care for the rest of the week ending October 4, 2019.
