  • NSTU Strike Action: Parent/Guardian Frequently Asked Questions

    On November 28, the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU) announced they are planning strike action beginning Monday, December 5. A "Frequently Asked Questions" information sheet for parents/guardians has been developed to address some of the questions you may have about the impacts of this strike action on activities at your child's school. This information sheet is available as a pdf for download, or click to read more.

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.
