Gravel Road Closures –
TCRSB wishes to advise parents /guardians that as a result of the poor gravel road condition, in collaboration with Dept. of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal, that Busses will not be travelling on Roads listed below, effective Feb 28th/17 for a few days or longer.
Regular transportation will resume once the Road condition improves to point where the following roads will support the weight of Busses. Student's picked up this morning will be returned home today at the regular time.
Yarmouth County –
We appreciate your patience and understanding that the Board is attempting to preserve the existing road condition as they currently exist, allowing local traffic ability to continue to navigate during this rapid thaw.
We suggest that you monitor the Boards website, in event the thaw requires additional roads to be listed.

The Yarmouth Branch of Coastal Financial Credit Union has made an extremely generous financial donation to Yarmouth County school breakfast programs. This donation will be used to support the existing programs in all of our schools. Our students need to eat well in order to learn. Breakfast improves school performance, cognitive function, behaviour, as well as classroom mood and atmosphere. Thank you Credit Union!

Noah and his fellow Mount Allison students-to-be were then treated to a back stage meet and greet.
