Ski Day #2 CANCELLED - Feb. 8
02/04/2019
Dear Parents/Guardians, I am contacting you to share some disappointing news. The ski trip planned for Friday, February 8 is being cancelled due to lack of bus drivers. Across the province, bus companies are experiencing staff shortages. At this point in time, the bus company believes it can fulfill its obligation to transport our students on February 22. Our office staff have attempted to contact other bus companies and we have been informed by some companies that they are unable to assist or that we will be charged an additional $2,500.00 to transport students. We will be refunding families either through an e-transfer if you paid on-line or by cheque if you paid in cash or cheque. We will delay refunding families until we are 100% sure we are able to participate on February 22. Thank you for your understanding. Respectfully Cindy Alce
