All Grand Erie secondary schools will be closed to students on March 5. This includes Adult, Alternative and Continuing Education programs offered through Grand Erie, including GELA (Grand Erie Learning Alternatives).

This is due to escalated job action (a.k.a. stiffing the kids) by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF). Schools will re-open to students Friday.

Grand Erie elementary schools are not impacted by OSSTF job action and will be open.
