Elementary Schools Closed to Students Fri.Jan.11,2013
Dear Parents/Guardians:
The elementary teachers have chosen Friday, January 11th to stage a one day political protest against the provincial government.  As a result elementary schools will be closed to students and transportation for those students will be cancelled on Friday. Regular classes and transportation will resume on Monday, January 14, 2013.
All day cares, Ontario Early Years Centres, and Parenting and Family Literacy Centres in our elementary schools, as well as before and after school programs, will continue to operate.  There may be pickets at schools.
I regret the inconvenience that the dispute between the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario and the provincial government is causing.  
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Principal of your child’s school.
Warren Kennedy
Director of Education
