ETFO Jan. 28 Strike: All UGDSB Elementary Schools to Close, Unless Strike is Averted – UGDSB Secondary Schools Remain Open

On January 23, 2020, the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) announced that its elementary teachers and occasional teachers will take part in a one-day, full withdrawal of services in select locations across Ontario on Tuesday Jan. 28. The Upper Grand District School Board is listed as one of the school boards that will be included in the Jan. 28 strike.

The ETFO strike will not impact UGDSB high schools. If this strike proceeds, all UGDSB ELEMENTARY schools will be closed to students; transportation for those students will be cancelled. All UGDSB SECONDARY schools will remain open to students and will operate as usual. Jan. 28 is an exam day in secondary schools; exams will continue as scheduled. Transportation will continue to run for secondary students.
