As a reminder, if a provincial settlement is not reached, members of the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO), who are in a legal strike position, will engage in one-day strike actions (full withdrawal of services) on Tuesday, February 4 and Thursday, February 6, 2020.
A full strike would mean elementary teachers would not report to work and the LKDSB will not be able to safely operate our elementary schools. As such, elementary schools will be closed to students on the Tuesday, February 4, 2020 and Thursday, February 6, 2020, if the one-day legal strike actions proceed. Elementary schools and programs will be open to students on Wednesday,
February 5, 2020.
Please note: All secondary schools and programs under the supervision
of an Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF) member at a Board or affiliated location will be closed to students
on Tuesday, February 4, if the one-day legal strike by OSSTF members proceeds. Secondary schools will be open to students on February 6, 2020.
Due to anticipated school closures, families are strongly encouraged to explore alternate childcare arrangements. The LKDSB is hopeful a provincial agreement can be reached, and the full strike actions will be avoided.
The LKDSB will update parents/guardians and all stakeholders through the LKDSB website as soon as new information becomes available. Please visit the LKDSB website (www.lkdsb.net) regularly for up-to-date information.
Updates regarding the ETFO contract negotiations will be posted on this webpage.
