April
13, 2011, Bristol, NB – A long-standing tradition will end in the fall of 2012
when students at Carleton North High School in New Brunswick no longer get the
potato break.

District
14’s education council says it’s ending the practice of giving students at the
school in Bristol two weeks off every fall to help with the harvest.

Superintendent
Lisa Gallagher says after two years of debate, the council is confident it is
moving forward with the right plan.

Letters
were sent home with students recently, and the school’s principal followed up
with a voicemail to let parents know what is happening.

Students
will still be allowed to miss 12 days of school to work on the harvest, but
they’ll have to let the school know in early September that they’ll be taking
the time.

School
officials say that way, staff will be able to help them catch up when they
return to class.
