On February 18th, 2020, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) advised Catholic school boards that it would be engaging in a series of rotating strikes during the week of February 24th to 28th. Catholic schools across Renfrew County will be closed on Thursday, February 27th, 2020.
As a result, unless an agreement is reached prior to this date, all Renfrew County Catholic District School Board classes will be cancelled and schools will be closed on Thursday, February 27th, 2020.
We will endeavour to communicate promptly as information becomes available on the Board’s social media platforms (Twitter, Board Website, Facebook) and through media releases as information becomes available to us. We continue to hope that a negotiated settlement will be reached by the parties at the central bargaining table.
