OCDSB schools will accept students, but school bus service
By Fred Sherwin
The Ottawa Carleton District School Board says parents
can drop off their kids at the board's elementary schools
despite the fact they are officially closed.
board decided to close the schools and cancel school bus
service late last night under the threat of a planned
one day walkout by teachers. But the Ontario Labour Relations
Board issued a ruling early this morning stating the planned
work stoppage was illegal, meaning the teachers won't
be walking off the job afterall.
a result the board has decided to accept students and
offer them with alternative non-instructional activities.
