'Closed' OCDSB schools will accept students, but school bus service still cancelled
By Fred Sherwin
Orléans Online

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.

The 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.

As a result the board has decided to accept students and offer them with alternative non-instructional activities.
