The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) has been identified as one of the boards that will be affected.</span></p><p><span style="color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:12.5pt;">In the SCDSB, this branch of ETFO represents our permanent elementary teachers, occasional elementary teachers and designated early childhood educators (DECEs). Should a tentative agreement not be reached, all SCDSB elementary schools will be closed to students on Monday, January 27, 2020, as there would not be sufficient supervision to ensure student safety. </span></p><p><span style="color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:12.5pt;">As a result, transportation for elementary school students will be cancelled on Monday, January 27, 2020.</span></p><p><span style="color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:12.5pt;">Before and after school programs in our buildings will not operate.
