The letter, released on Monday at 10 a.m., says the province needs to provide immediate funding or watch the system fall apart.

“We have tried our best over the last two months of school reopening, but the shortcomings in our system due to lack of provincial policy and funding has taken its toll on the health and wellbeing of our educators, school leaders, support staff, and students,” reads the letter.
