National Day of Mourning

 

The National Day of Mourning is observed annually in Canada on April 28 to honour those who have lost their lives while working on the job. The purpose of the National Day of Mourning is two-fold … to remember and honour those lives lost or injured and to renew the commitment to improving health and safety in the workplace … to prevent further deaths, injuries and diseases from work.

Every year workers, families, employers, communities and others come together at ceremonies held around the province and the country to remember those who have lost their lives to work-related incidents or occupational disease, and to renew their commitment to creating safe workplaces. Since its inception, the observance has spread to over 80 countries around the world, but is known in most other countries as the Workers’ Memorial Day.

The Canadian flag on Parliament Hill is typically flown at half-mast on April 28, and workers and employees observe this day in various ways including observing moments of silence.

To mark our school district’s commitment in observance of the National Day of Mourning on April 28, Coast Mountains School District flags will be lowered to half-mast on Friday afternoon, April 27 and raised on Monday, April 30 prior to the start of school.

For more information, please visit the BC Day of Mourning website at dayofmourning.bc.ca.

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are sure that everyone is aware of the fatal bus crash that happened over the weekend in Humboldt, Saskatchewan with members of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team. Fifteen people did not come home that night. As we have so many students who travel for sports, dance, and other activities throughout the year, this really hits close to home.

Skeena Middle School will be participating in Jersey Day on Thursday, April 12th to honour their memory and show support for the victims of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash by wearing a jersey to school.

The date is set for Thursday, April 12. If students do not have jerseys, they are encouraged to wear team/club shirts, hoodies, scarves, etc.

Please see the link below…

Jersey Day – Thursday April 12th, 2018

If you are paying by cheque, please make all cheques out to Skeena Middle School.  If you are paying with cash, please ensure that you include the exact amount for the order.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our school.

Payment and order forms for Grade 7 and 8 students must be returned to the classroom teacher.  Grade 9 students must return payment and order forms to the office.

Dear CMSD82 Employee,

On March 23, 2018 SmartFindExpress performed an update which has led to some on-call employees receiving calls but being unable to connect to the system.

Included in the update is the following new feature as shared by SmartFindExpress:

  • We have a new option that is not turned on for your district.  The option will need the sub to only enter their pin, and there is a playback to verify what was entered.  This new option has helped reduce many invalid entry phone issues for the subs.
  • You will want to notify the subs that when the system calls they will just need to enter in their pin only.  The system will play back the digits received and then they can confirm or re-enter.

SmartFindExpress believes that turning on this feature will resolve the issues of on-call employees being unable to connect.

Important Notations:

  • Effective April 6, 2018 after morning call-out we will activate this feature.
  • Beginning the evening call-out on April 8 onward you will only need to enter your PIN and * to log in to SmartFindExpress

Should you experience any issues, please include as much information as possible (date, time, job number, nature of the issue) and email hr@cmsd.bc.ca. 

If you have questions or you require immediate assistance, please contact Richard Anderson, Automated Dispatch Help Desk Clerk at 250-638-4439 or 1-855-635-4931, Local 4439 between the hours of 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

 

Sincerely,

Kyla Magnusson
Human Resources Officer
