Rita Collver, Chair of the [Grand Erie and District School] Board: “OSSTF’s announcement built on the goodwill and commitment of working with the government to promote teachers’ involvement in sports, clubs and other activities for the betterment of the school experience.

We are seeing significant re-engagement of our staff in sports, clubs and activities.

We are extremely disappointed in the Executive of the Elementary Teachers’
Federation of Ontario who have advised their members to continue to take a pause on
sports, clubs and activities that directly affect our students.

Students, parents, families and communities deserve an explanation from the
government and from the provincial union.

All of our staff members continue to focus on student learning and safety.

Our hope is for the Provincial government and the elementary union to continue their
talks and come to a resolution on behalf of the students.”

    Grand Erie District School Board Trustees are pleased with the announcement from the union leadership of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO), which states: ‘ETFO is suspending the advice to members regarding their participation in voluntary/extra-curricular activities.’ The announcement is welcomed news to our
    students, parents, staff and community members.

    Trustees are encouraged by the approach and the positive tone between ETFO and the government at this time. As discussions move forward, Trustees will continue to advocate that our voice is heard to ensure that students are considered first. Chair, Rita Collver, on behalf of the Grand Erie District School Board Trustees
