K-12 update from CUPE BC and the Ministry of Education regarding COVID19

Dear CUPE members,
We want to thank you for your patience and understanding as government, school districts, Canadian Union of Public Employees and teachers work together to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and the suspension of in-school classes. We know it has been a difficult time for everyone involved. The decision to suspend in-classroom learning was made on Tuesday, March 17, under the direction of the Provincial Health Officer. This action was necessary to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health of all British Columbians.
