Labour update – February 12
An agreement has not yet been reached between the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) and the province and so Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) teachers and designated early childhood educators (DECE) staff will be on strike on Thursday, February 13.
All elementary schools will be closed on Thursday, February 13. Secondary schools will remain open.
Daycares, before and after school programs, and community use of school after-hours programs, are not affected by the strike. Bus transportation will not be provided to TLDSB elementary students if schools are closed on Thursday. TLDSB does provide bussing to Catholic schools in Muskoka and in the City of Kawartha Lakes and so buses will still be running. Please do not put your elementary TLDSB child on the bus on Thursday.
There is financial support available to parents of eligible children for each day of school that is missed due to labour disruption. Parents and guardians of TLDSB students are asked to visit the Ministry of Education website at www.Ontario.ca/SupportForParents or the dedicated Support for Parents Helpline at 888-444-3770.
Updates will be provided to you as more information becomes available. To find out the status of labour action in TLDSB continue to visit this page at https://tldsb.ca/labour-updates/.
