The Halifax Regional School Board says it has hired security guards for 15 schools due to concerns about students arriving early who wouldn’t be supervised, as teachers begin their work-to-rule job action.

According to the CBC’s Paul Palmeter:

Under the union’s work-to-rule plan, teachers will show up at school 20 minutes before classes start and leave 20 minutes after the last class of the day.

Doug Hadley, a spokesman for the Halifax school board, said the guards were brought in to help supervise children arriving by bus before teachers. He said Stock Transportation, which handles busing, is working to change its schedules so students arrive later.
