Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO)
as of January 15, 2020 at 9am
As of this morning the ETFO has announced:
ETFO has given the required 5 day notice for Ottawa-Carleton, Toronto and York Region school boards in anticipation of a one-day strike on Monday Jan 20. Strike to happen unless Ford's government reps get serious about reaching a deal by Friday.
This means there is a strong possibility that the TDSB elementary teachers may go on strike on Monday. This will effect Poplar Road JPS.
The TDSB has confirmed the Daycares CAN REMAIN OPEN:
Licensed child care programs for children 0-4 years of age will be permitted to continue to operate in TDSB schools within regular business hours, and licensed before-and after-school programs would be permitted to provide a full day program, similar to those offered on PA days, within leased and licensed space.
The daycare will run on a PA Day schedule for the day. There will be an additional cost to Full Fee Kindergarten and School Age children to accommodate full day programming.
We will provide invoices to families.
We will continue to monitor the communications with the TDSB and the ETFO and update this page as we receive further information.
