Superintendent of Schools ends travel restrictions
May 6, 2009 – After reviewing the latest information regarding the H1N1 Influenza outbreak, the Superintendent has suspended all restrictions on staff and student travel.
Effective May 7, the District will allow students and staff to resume air travel within Canada as well as all international field trips and district business trips.
The District will continue to monitor the H1N1 influenza outbreak and is prepared to make additional adjustments should circumstances change in the future.
For the sake of context, be aware that this statement was released after a three hour closed door meeting with the elected School Board Trustees.
Similar action has been taken by the Catholic School Board.
