Dear Families of the York Catholic District School Board,
We hope that you had an excellent weekend and had an opportunity to spend some quality time with your loved ones.
At this time, CUPE and the Government of Ontario do not seem to be close to an agreement that will allow for the return of students into the classroom. In fact, as of Sunday November 6th, the parties to the central bargaining process are making submissions to the Ontario Labour Relations Board.
As such, this is a reminder that York Catholic schools will move to synchronous virtual learning starting tomorrow (Monday, November 7, 2022). Students should have received instructions from their school/teacher on how to join their virtual classroom.
To ensure our students have access to education, our schools are working to provide technology to students who need it. Assessments will not be conducted virtually for the next few days for students who are usually in-person learners. Please reach out to your school if you have any questions or if you need assistance.
Please note that some of the normal operations of our schools may be slower than usual as our CUPE-represented employees will not be available for work due to the provincial job action.
We will continue to provide updates to families via email, the YCDSB website and YCDSB Twitter account.
Please join us in praying that students will be able to return to the classroom soon.
Yours in Christ,
Director of Education
