UPDATE: TORONTO -- Hundreds of schools across Ontario will remain open after the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the province came to a last-minute deal on Sunday night.

TORONTO - With a potential strike for thousands of CUPE workers looming, school boards across Ontario are indicating whether or not their facilities will remain open in the event of job action.

The contract for 55,000 education and maintenance workers with the Canadian Union of Public Employees expired on Aug. 31. The union, government and school boards have been in negotiations ever since. However, the union announced this past week that they are willing to escalate to a strike if a deal cannot be struck.

Some of the affected workers include janitorial staff, clerical staff and early childhood educators.

If a strike happens, it would start on Monday, Oct. 7, which means school boards are already making plans. Some school boards that said their facilities would be open on Monday have indicated there could be closures down the line if the strike extends beyond that.

Here is a list of all the school boards in Ontario and what they plan to do if a strike happens on Monday:
