Niagara English Catholic schools will be closed Thursday ahead of March break


A reminder that Niagara Catholic schools will be closed this Thursday.

The Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) will conduct a one-day, province-wide walkout on Thursday, March 5th.

The Niagara Catholic District School Board says all elementary and secondary schools will be closed.

The OSSTF is also planning strikes at select boards, but Niagara is not impacted.

The Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario is not engaging in any strikes this week, but the union has said if contract deals aren't reached by Friday, they will begin a new phase of strikes effective Monday.

Kids will be out of school for March break from the 16-20th.
