PENTICTON - It's business as usual in Penticton as most students appear to have ignored a student initiative to protest the latest labour disruption in their schools.

At Pen High, students were in class on time with no signs of anyone taking the leap to protest. Vice principal Donna Moroz says she heard little chatter from students leading to this morning. Students around the province had planned a 9 a.m. walk out with limited participation in Kelowna, for example, but nothing at all in Penticton.

McNicholl middle school, KVR middle school, Skaha Lake middle school and Princess Margaret secondary school all showed no signs of a walkout.
