Since Tuesday’s announcement that students in grades 7 through 12 will be engaged in at-home learning for the period November 30 – December 18, and again from January 4 – 8.
Local 55 has been inundated with contacts from teachers requesting details on the implications of this in addition to the staff meetings held for each school from their Principal in regards to this.
Most have been seeking clarification and a rationale regarding the employer’s expectations for teachers and their work requirements during this time. Your Executive Assistant and President were able to meet with the Chief Superintendent on the morning of November 25th to seek this clarification. It is our hope that the information below will go some way towards answering your questions:
Please keep in mind that the current situation is changing as COVID-19 cases continue to change. Your flexibility and understanding is appreciated as we continue to get updates from Government.
God bless and keep safe,
Mario Vergara | President
