Both Niagara Region school boards were quick to welcome their students back to class after CUPE halted its strike when the Ontario provincial government rescinded the controversial notwithstanding clause earlier today (November 7).

The Niagara Catholic District School Board (NCDSB) went online after CUPE dropped the strike and said, “We are pleased to advise you that all Niagara Catholic schools will be open to students on Tuesday, November 8.”

They then asked any families that “received technology from their child’s school earlier today are expected to return it to the school tomorrow when their child returns to school.”

The District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) echoes those sentiments, noting, “Today, the provincial government and CUPE have announced they will be returning to the negotiating table. This news means that all DSBN schools will OPEN to in-person learning for Tuesday, November 8.”

“Schools will continue to stay open to in-person learning while negotiations are ongoing between CUPE and the province.”

The DSBN concluded, “We know this has been a difficult time, and we thank you for working through this situation with us. If families and students have any questions, please reach out to your school principal.”
