The Bulkley Valley School District (SD54) says it will not proceed with a vaccine mandate for its employees.

A letter to staff and parents from Board Chair Jennifer Williams says the school board voted on the matter at an in camera meeting last night.

This means the meeting was not open to the public.

However, the board did reserve the right to revisit the decision at a later date if necessary.

Since the matter was voted on in camera, Williams says the board will not be making further comments at this time.
