Dear parents and guardians,
The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) has announced that its teachers and education workers will take part in a one-day, full withdrawal of services on Friday Feb. 28, 2020.
In the UGDSB, OSSTF represents a number of different employee groups in both elementary and secondary schools. As a result, if a deal is not reached and this strike occurs, all schools in the UGDSB (elementary, secondary and Continuing Education) will be closed to students on Friday Feb. 28, 2020.
Community Use of Schools and third-party operated child care centres will remain open during this labour action. Some Before and/or After School Programs may be operating and each operator will communicate directly with families.
For further information please:

We will continue to provide updates as information becomes available.
