Ottawa school boards are monitoring protests ahead of returning to class on Monday

Ottawa school boards are monitoring the ongoing protest in downtown Ottawa in the event of possible disruption on Monday.

The Ottawa Catholic School Board says all schools are scheduled to be open on Monday, “although there may be bus delays downtown.”

“The Ottawa Catholic School Board is working with the Ottawa Police Services to monitor any potential impact on traffic or safety issues for our schools located near downtown,” the board said in a statement. “We will provide our staff and community with updates in the event of any changes in personal learning tomorrow.”

Meanwhile, both the Ottawa Carleton District School Board and the Conseil des ecoles catholiques du Center Est say they are monitoring the situation ahead of returning to school on Monday.

“OCDSB continues to monitor the demonstrations and traffic disruptions taking place in Ottawa. If we feel these disruptions will prevent access to and safe opening of schools for students and staff on Monday, we will notify those affected,” OCDSB said on Twitter .

The French Catholic school board said it is in communication with Ottawa police and city officials about the situation in downtown Ottawa and potential consequences for the school.

“This situation may cause some disruption to various schools due to the traffic ban in and around the city center,” the CECCE said, adding that more information will be sent to parents and staff tonight.
