Montreal - Thursday, September 26, 2019
UPDATE: Some elementary and secondary schools may have scheduled a pedagogical day. This will be marked on your school calendar. In the case of last-minute changes, parents and guardians have been informed. If you are unsure, please verify directly with your school.

The English Montreal School Board will hold classes as usual on Friday, September 27, but parents may choose to allow their children to attend the major climate change rally that day.

EMSB Director General Ann Marie Matheson has advised parents that should they wish to authorize their child to attend the rally they must notify the school in writing.

“The English Montreal School Board   is concerned about climate change, and as an organization, we continuously strive to be environmentally conscious,” said Ms. Matheson. “This rally will take place during our regular school hours and this event is not an activity supervised by the school, thus we cannot release our students.”

Ms. Matheson said that  EMSB schools are encouraged to hold activities on September 27 to promote the importance of climate change issues. “Our leadership students will certainly have ideas and suggestions to highlight this important topic,” she said.
