Elementary and intermediate students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 should not report to school.

All Limestone secondary schools remain open during the exam period.

Child-care centres located within Limestone schools remain open. Early ON programs remain open. If in doubt, please contact your provider directly.

Community use of schools within Limestone schools continue as scheduled. Users will be notified directly of any changes.

Teachers represented by ETFO may choose to picket outside Limestone secondary schools. They are legally permitted to do so. We ask that those required to cross picket lines be courteous and respectful. 

We are hopeful that the parties at the central table are able to reach an agreement soon.

The Board will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
