A Langley mother “walked in” to her child’s elementary school this morning as teachers held their one-day rotating walkout outside.
The teachers weren’t happy, but there wasn’t much fuss.
Brigitte MacNamara cautiously pulled into the parking at Simonds elementary as about a dozen teachers looked on from the sidewalk.
They wore their picket signs, but said nothing, at least not loudly, at the mother of two and two other parents with their kids crossing their picket line.
Two Mounties were on scene as well.
MacNamara repeats she’s not trying to snub the union — she’s had to take the day off work anyway, so why not bring the kids in to do some work?
She says, “There’s math, we’re doing science, we’re going to be doing research in the library using the books as much as possible because that’s the only place that we will get access to apparently.”
No teacher would comment to reporters.
