Rainbow District School Board’s secondary teachers and support staff represented by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) will engage in a full withdrawal of services on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 in response to negotiations at the provincial level.
All classes for Grades 9 to 12 will be cancelled for the day in Rainbow Schools in Sudbury, Espanola and Manitoulin Island. This includes Barrydowne College, the N’Swakamok Native Alternative School, the Attendance Centre and the Adult Day School.

School office staff, however, will be participating in the full withdrawal of services.
Parents/guardians of students in Kindergarten to Grade 8 are asked to notify their child’s school of any absences. This is very important for the safe arrival program. Please call the school and ensure that you leave a message if your child will be away on that day.
