UPPER CANADA — The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) has not yet reached a deal with the province and have planned a one-day walkout on Wednesday, December 4 unless a deal is reached.

Here is how students and schools will be impacted on Wednesday, December 4:

  • There will be no classes, planned activities, co-operative education placements, duel-credit programs, or extracurriculars for students in Grades 9 to 12. There will also be no transportation provided for these students.
  • There will be no classes for students in specialized programs in Grades 7-12, known as ABLE, SDP, Transitions or Foundations programs. There will also be no transportation provided for these students.
  • Regular classes for students in Kindergarten to Grade 8 WILL proceed as usual, even if students in Grade 7 and Grade 8 are in a secondary school. Transportation for these students remains unaffected.
  • Community use programs and childcare operations that are run in our schools will not be impacted.

They will communicate any additional updates via My Family Room, on this website and social media tomorrow morning by 6:15 a.m.

They want to thank families for their patience during these uncertain times.
