It’s back to school for kids all across the GTA today – unless you’re a student in Halton Region.
Thousands of kids in the region serving Oakville, Burlington and Milton will get an extra day of summer vacation while their teachers take a PA (professional activity) day.
David Boag told CBC News here that parents were informed of this scheduling situation back in the spring via email. Halton District School Board issued a press release late last week highlighting the fact that school would officially begin Wednesday.
The unusual PA day placement was a result of the new contract agreed upon by Ontario teachers and the province.
