Dear Parents/Guardians of Elementary and Junior High School Students,

We would like to provide you with a further update with regards to planned job action by the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO).

ETFO has formally given notice that elementary teachers will begin in a partial withdrawal of service on Monday, May 11, 2015.  The law permits the partial withdrawal of service while in a strike position.

ALL TDSB ALL SCHOOLS WILL REMAIN OPEN AND PROGRAMMING WILL CONTINUE.

ETFO has directed teachers to continue to:

* Teach and provide extra help to students.
* Take attendance.
* Maintain contact with parents/guardians regarding during instructional day.
* Provide scheduled supervisory duties
* Participate in extra-curricular activities.

ETFO has directed teachers to not:

* Participate in EQAO (standardized testing)
* Participate in other Ministry of Education initiatives.

We encourage all parents/guardians to monitor the TDSB website at www.tdsb.on.ca or follow us on Twitter 2 TDSB for regular updates.

We remain hopeful that a mutually acceptable resolution can be reached without further disruptions to the school day.

Sincerely,
