Potential CUPE Strike – Monday, October 7th
In the event of a CUPE strike on Monday, October 7th parents are asked to check their normal media outlets as they would in the event of an inclement weather school closure.
As per our student agendas:
In case of inclement weather, the radio stations will broadcast information regarding severe weather warnings, school closure and bus cancellations. Families may want to have a plan in place at home to respond to the radio announcements. Bus cancellations and school closure notices affecting the schools within the Waterloo Catholic District School Board will be given between 6:45 and 8:30 a.m.
C.H.Y.M. (AM 570) (FM 96.7) Kitchener – Waterloo KICX (FM 106.7) Kitchener – Waterloo

Our Catholic School Advisory Councils play a vital role in our schools and your contributions and efforts are always appreciated.
As a point of information, please be advised that based on the current “strike action” on the part of CUPE members, all fundraising activities are to be put on hold. In the full expectation that this will be revisited upon conclusion of the job action.
We recognize that much planning and organizing may have already been done and apologize that events will need to be postponed.
CUPE members in the WCDSB include Administrative Assistants, Educational Assistants, Library Technicians, Personal Support Workers, Lunch Hour Supervisors, Child and Youth Care Workers, Payroll and Accounting Associates, Computer Technicians, Communicative Disorders Assistants and Early Childhood Educators. As fundraising activities often require collection of monies, additional administrative tasks, and alternative supervision schedules we are unable to responsibly manage this based on “strike actions”.
Thank you for your understanding and please note that we fully expect that all activities will resume once job actions have been resolved.
Picture Day is coming on Wednesday, October 9.
