Dear LINCOLN SCHOOL Families:
Earlier this week you received a letter detailing our District's contingency plans in the event of a strike by the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU). I join with CPS leadership and many others in the belief that a strike can be avoided through continued negotiations, but know each of you have real concerns about what happens should a strike occur.
What You Should Know:
We encourage you to keep your student(s) at home or at a non-CPS facility during the strike. CTU leadership has issued a 10-day strike notice. With this action, a strike could begin as early as Tuesday (October 11). In the event of a strike:
Where Can I Find More Information?
For contingency site locations, hours of operation, and frequently asked questions, visitcps.edu/strikeplan or call 311.
We may not know whether there will be a strike until the end of the weekend, but I will continue to provide updates via email as they occur. I encourage you to look for emails to make sure have the most accurate information about our District's status.
I know this time is a challenging one for our entire school community, and I thank you for your patience and support as we make certain we're prepared.
