Public high school teachers are set to hold a one-day strike on Wednesday, December 4, if a new deal is not reached before then.

In Waterloo Region, the public school board says both its secondary and elementary schools would be impacted - as clerical staff, educational assistants and custodial staff, who work in the Waterloo Region District School Board's elementary schools, are all represented by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation.

In the event the strike does happen, The City of Kitchener will offer programming for children ages 4 to 10 at the Lions Arena.

Lions Arena Camp will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Space in the program is limited and the cost to participate is $25. 

You can find more information about the camp here.

The City of Cambridge announced it will offer two day camps on Wednesday - one at the W.G. Johnson Centre and the other at the John Dolson Centre.

The fee is $40 and registration opened at noon on Monday.

You can find more information on the city's website.

The City of Waterloo is following suit and offering a day-camp program Wednesday, in the event of a strike.

It's set to happen at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex. You can learn more by clicking here.
