PDSB Teachers’ Strike Update – Peel District School Board – 12/12/12

Another letter will be going home with PDSB elementary (K to Grade 8) students today. Keep in mind that, as of yet, no 72 hours notice has been given. That means that students will be at school for the remainder of this week and that no strike will take place before Friday December 14, 2012. 

Here’s the latest info going home today from the PDSB:

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR FAMILIES: Status of elementary schools on one-day strike

Since we cannot ensure the safety of students on the one-day strike, all Peel board elementary schools will be closed to kindergarten to grade 8 students on this day. We do not yet know when the strike will take place. Once we receive 72 hours’ notice from the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario, we will inform families. A letter is being sent home with students today.

We know that it is important for families to begin planning for the one-day elementary teachers’ strike. A letter is being sent home with all elementary students today.

Please do not send your child to school on this day. In addition to elementary school closures:

  • Buses will be cancelled. There will be no bus service for students.
  • Before-school/after-school and extended day programs offered by third-party providers will be cancelled.
  • Hubs and Readiness Centres, and Parenting & Family Literacy Centres will be closed to students and families.
  • Teachers may be picketing outside the school.

Elementary schools will re-open the day after the strike.

Secondary schools will remain open to students—they are not affected by the strike.

We remain committed to keeping you informed. Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.
