The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has announced additional one-day strikes for next week, unless there is progress at the bargaining table. The Peel District School Board is affected on Friday, Jan. 31, 2020.
Elementary teachers play an important role in keeping schools running smoothly and safely. Because student safety is a top priority and cannot be ensured during an ETFO strike, if the one-day strike takes place, all Peel board elementary schools will be closed to kindergarten to grade 8 students on Friday, Jan. 31, 2020.
We will provide details on other impacts—including child care—tomorrow morning (Jan. 27). Thank you for your understanding.
