Important information for parents of Skelep School students

Kamloops City

2017-10-27 15:22 PDT

All students of Skelep School on Kamloops Indian Band Reserve will be leaving the school today at the regular time of 2:40 pm. Parents are not to go to school to pick up their children.

Students will be bused away from the school down Shuswap Road to the Lafarge Bridge. If they wish, parents may pick up their children on the north side of Lafarge Bridge. If parents choose not to or cannot pick up their children at Lafarge, the children will be bused home as usual. However, due to Highway 5 being closed due to the police emergency happening, the buses could be up to one hour later than usual dropping the children off.

Parents who normally pick their children up from the school but are not able to go to the Lafarge Bridge to get them, school staff will be with the students at all time and will make further arrangements for the students.

There is no update in relation to the ongoing police incident.
