March 1, 2020 – The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) representing Secondary Teachers and Education Workers, have announced that their members will participate in one-day rotating strikes (full withdrawal of services) at a number of school boards, including the Near North District School Board, on Thursday, March 5, 2020.
Due to safety concerns including inability to provide the required supervision to students, a full withdrawal of services will result in all elementary and secondary schools being closed to students on Thursday, March 5, 2020.
While we understand that this is a challenging time, parents will be required to make alternate arrangements for their children.
Given that this is a one-day full withdrawal of services, all schools will re-open on Friday, March 6, 2020.
All Early Years Programs; Childcare, School Aged Programs and Early On Child and Family Centres will remain open. Community Use will run as usual.
