Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE - Ma­gog

The teach­ers, staff and per­son­nel of both the East­ern Town­ships School Board (ETSB) and the Com­mis­sion Sco­laire des Som­mets (CSS) will be go­ing on strike next Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 28th.

The ETSB is­sued the fol­low­ing state­ment on Tues­day: “The East­ern Town­ships School Board (ETSB) wishes to in­form all its stu­dents and par­ents that its teach­ers, pro­fes­sion­als and sup­port staff are in a le­gal strike po­si­tion on Oc­to­ber 28th 2015, thereby forc­ing the can­cel­la­tion of all classes in the youth, adult ed­u­ca­tion and vocational train­ing sec­tors of all ETSB schools and cen­tres. This can­cel­la­tion will also af­fect day­care ser­vices, which will be closed as well. As there may be other dis­rup­tions to classes in the com­ing weeks, we ask that par­ents and

stu­dents re­main dili­gent in read­ing all com­mu­niqués from their school/cen­tre and check the school board web­site at www.etsb.qc.ca.”

All classes and ser­vices will be sus­pended in all of the Com­mis­sion Sco­laire des Som­mets schools (Jardin-des-Fron­tieres), in­clud­ing the Passe-Partout and day­care pro­grams. The CSS ad­min­is­tra­tive cen­tre will also be closed.

The teach­ers and per­son­nel have voted to hold six strike days.
