Abbotsford School District cancels recess for students

Abbotsford reacts to teacher job action.

Global News

VANCOUVER – The Abbotsford School District has become the latest to cancel recess, in response to ongoing job action from teachers.

There will be no recess at elementary and middle schools in Abbotsford as of Monday.

The decision is being blamed on cost as the district says it can no longer afford the expense associated with having management supervise recess.

Teachers are not watching over students out of class time as part of their job action.

Without recess, school will now start 15 to 20 minutes later than normal.
