TRURO - Youngsters who rely on breakfast programs at local schools may have to eat well before leaving home if a strike occurs next week.
Carolyn Pierce, spokeswoman for Chignecto-Central Regional School Board, said the delivery of such programs will be decided by each school if a strike takes place, beginning Monday.
Parents of children in Cobequid, Nova and Celtic school jurisdictions who participate in special meal programs should call their school to see if the programs are available.
Many of these programs are overseen by volunteers and include meal cleanup, said Pierce. Timing is also an issue if a strike occurs.
"If there's a strike schools would only be open 20 minutes before and after classes so the time limit may impact (the possibility) of programs," Pierce said.
Extracurricular programs in general would be cancelled, which could also endanger school musicals this year.
