Thames Valley District School Board and London District Catholic School Board
The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario and the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association have announced that, should there be no progress in negotiations, its members will conduct a province-wide one-day strike on Friday, February 21, 2020. If the strike proceeds, all schools in the Thames Valley District School Board and the London District Catholic School Board will be closed to students and all before and after school programs will be cancelled. All of our Children’s Centres and our Family Centres will remain open.
London Children’s Connection provides quality care and meets high safety standards. In the event of a strike, unfortunately, we are unable to offer full day programs at all of our school age program locations and meet these standards. We do not have the staffing required to offer full day school age programs at every location, as many staff in our before and after school programs have other commitments during the day.
