  • November 28: Information for Parents and Guardians--NSTU Job Action

    This morning, the Nova Scotia Teachers Union announced that it intends to begin a work-to-rule strike action on Monday, December 5th at all schools in Nova Scotia. 

    The NSTU has described the work-to-rule in this way: Teachers will continue to carry out their instructional duties in classrooms, but will not support any extracurricular activities like concerts, coaching teams or supervising clubs; field trips will not go ahead. The NSTU has indicated that teachers will arrive 20 minutes before school and leave 20 minutes after, as stipulated in the Teachers Provincial Agreement. 

    More details about the impact of a work-to-rule job action on AVRSB students and schools will be available in the coming days. Please continue to monitor www.avrsb.ca and @avrsb on Twitter for further updates. 



Berwick and District Visitor Policy Reminder:  Please remember to make contact with the office when arriving at Berwick and District. If you are looking to touch base with your child's teacher or needing to pick up your child, once you check in at the office we are requesting that you wait there until your child arrives at the office, or until the teacher comes to meet you. This procedure helps us maintain safety within our school in case of an emergency.  We thank you for your support.
