On January 13, 2020, the Ontario Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA), representing Catholic teachers across the province, gave notice that they will hold a one-day, province-wide full withdrawal of services (strike) on Tuesday, January 21, 2020.
As OECTA represents all of our HCDSB elementary and secondary school teachers, a full withdrawal of services would mean that no instruction will take place in any of our classrooms. This will pose significant student supervision challenges that would threaten the safety of our students.
In light of these safety concerns, we will close all schools to students on Tuesday, January 21, 2020, unless a strike is averted.
