The scramble is on for daycare with no school.
Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014 | 6:43am PDT
Only one school open in Kamloops today.

Normally today, we tell you to watch out for all the school kids heading back to class, and police are telling us to slow down in the school zones. Today is different. No school today in B.C. as the teachers strike drags on. Instead, teachers are expected to be back on the picket lines, and parents will be scrambling to find space in daycares that are already bursting at the seams. Aside from local picket action, teachers will be holding rallies in Vancouver, and at the legislature in Victoria to bring attention to the lack of talks, which broke off on the weekend when Mediator Vince Ready declared an impasse. There are no new negotiations planned. The government has offered parents $40 a day for each student under 12, but that's small consolation to those short of cash, because they won't get any money until late September or into October. Parents will join rallies in Kamloops. There's a rally expected in front of MLA Todd Stone's office at 10 AM, but we're not sure at this point whether or not Terry Lake's office will also be hit. And while most schools are closed today, the Kamloops Christian School will be open today for their first day of school, so remember school zones will be active there. And of course, the heavy influx of students going to TRU will be very much in evidence in the McGill-Summit corridor. St. Ann's Academy won't have their first day of classes until tomorrow.
