The City of Toronto has been informed by the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) that its elementary school teachers will hold a one-day walkout on Tuesday, December 18.

Affected ARC parents can also contact the ARC General Information Line at 416-338-2512 for information.
• Permits for activities in TDSB schools that were obtained through the City have been moved to alternate locations or are being cancelled.
• PF&R offices located inside TDSB facilities will be closed for the day.
PF&R will continue regular activities at TDSB sites after 6 p.m. including:
• recreation programs
• permits obtained through the City
