All TDSB secondary schools (grades 9-12) are closed to students today (Wednesday, December 4, 2019) as a result of a one-day walkout by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) secondary teachers and education workers. Parents/guardians are required to make alternate arrangements for their children if necessary. Secondary schools will re-open to students on Thursday, December 5, 2019.
In addition to all TDSB secondary schools, Adult High Schools and Night School offering secondary credits are also closed to students. Any out-of-school activities (e.g. field trips, sports, etc.) are cancelled. General Interest courses offered in the evening are not impacted and will continue to run as usual. Elementary and middle schools remain open.
We remain hopeful that negotiations will continue and that a contract agreement can be reached to avoid any further disruption to students’ education.
