    April 29, 2014
    Dear Parents, As you are aware, all seven secondary schools in the Delta School District had planned to conduct an emergency release drill on May 8th (May 7th at Delta Secondary School). Unfortunately because of the difficulty of communicating effectively amongst staff due to the current teacher strike action, we have to postpone the planned emergency release drill.
