Update re: Possible Strike on Monday, Nov. 21

November 16, 2022


Dear Families of the York Catholic District School Board,

Earlier today CUPE served notice that they could resume their job action as soon as Monday, November 21, 2022.

In the event of a strike, York Catholic DSB will move to synchronous virtual learning on Monday. Schools will maintain their regular daily learning schedules. St. Teresa of Calcutta virtual school will proceed with classes as usual.

If there is a strike, please do not bring your child to school. There will be no supervision available for students.

Schools will send information separately on obtaining technology for families who need it.

Full-day Child Care Centers will have access to their facilities and can remain open at the discretion of the operator. Before and after care programs will be closed in the event of a strike.

Co-curricular activities will be cancelled during a strike.

We know that it is very stressful for families and staff to consider the possibility of not having classroom instruction again. The safety and well-being of our students and staff is always our main priority. We will continue to provide you with updates as we learn more.

We thank you for your ongoing support of the York Catholic DSB and our Education Workers. Please join us in continuing to pray for agreement between CUPE and the Government of Ontario that will keep our students in the classroom. 

Yours in Christ,


Domenic Scuglia
Director of Education
