This morning, I read an announcement over the PA system that informed our students about the potential job action.  Here is what was communicated to your child:

Some of you may have already heard from your families or friends or from the news that there is a possibility of a strike affecting our school, beginning on Monday morning.  If there is a strike, it means that some of our school staff will not be coming to work.   We hope and pray that this will not happen – but if it does, it means our school will have to close until the strike is over, and you will not be able to come to school.  We are doing our best to make sure your families have as much information about this situation as possible. They can keep up to date by visiting the school board’s website.  If our school does have to close on Monday, we hope it will only be closed for a short time and we can all be back together in our classrooms soon.”

In the event of a CUPE strike on Monday, October 7th parents are asked to check their normal media outlets as they would in the event of an inclement weather school closure.  Updates are also available on our Board website https://www.wcdsb.ca/about-us/labour-updates/

Sincerely,

Mrs. Sica
