Classes will resume today at schools in Simcoe County and Muskoka, after rotating teacher strikes moved into our area. 

However, due to the ongoing provincial labour disruption, the Simcoe County District School Board says it will not be possible to produce elementary report cards at this time. 

The board says parents and guardians can always contact their child's teacher if they have questions about academic achievement and well-being. 

Secondary school teachers across the province will continue their work-to-rule campaign today, which affects primarily administrative tasks related to Ministry of Education and school board initiatives. 

Extracurricular and other school events are expected to continue.

Tomorrow, the elementary teachers will be going on strike in the Bluewater District School Board, which includes schools in Meaford and Thornbury.

Due to the ongoing provincial labour disruption by the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation (OSSTF), there are also be some job action items that will affect Trillium Lakelands District School Board.

Elementary students will not receive term one report cards, while secondary students will receive term one report cards containing marks, but no comments. 

Elementary field trips have been cancelled and if a teacher is absent, extracurricular activities such as sporting events and field trips, may be cancelled on that day.
