Change in Bell Schedule
This is an important notice for all students.  As you know, the BC Teachers recently began Phase One strike action. At Claremont, this means that on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays: lunch will be shortened by 15 minutes and school will end 15 minutes earlier.  Busses will arrive 15 minutes earlier on those days. The earlier busses will start on WEDNESDAY April 30th and the shortened lunch breaks will start on THURSDAY May 1st.  A copy of the new bell schedule is posted outside of the office and on the Claremont website.
