English public elementary school kids in our region will have not one, but two days off next week because of teachers’ strike action.

In a notice posted to the DSB-1 Facebook page and website, director Lesleigh Dye says JK to Grade 8 classes are cancelled on Monday, February 3rd… and Thursday the 6th.

The Monday action is the latest rotating strike to hit the region between Hearst and Temagami.  Thursday’s is part of a province-wide service withdrawal by the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario.
