Possible Blockades on Pat Bay Hwy
by MaryLynn Heron - Wednesday, 26 February 2020, 8:51 AM

For after school dismissal, we are alerting our school community to the following information, in order to assist with the planning of your end of day commute. Comments on social media have the Pat Bay Highway being blocked by protesters between 2-5 pm today - Wed. Feb 26.  This is also a reminder that we have early dismissal today at 1:48.


The exact location of the blockade is not known but is speculated to be at the Mount Newton X-Road / Hwy 17 intersection. SD#63 Transportation Dept. is aware of the situation and is planning alternate routes for buses, but we can certainly expect some traffic delays throughout the peninsula.  Police will be monitoring the situation and hopefully providing a route for traffic flow.
