Thursday marks another day off for elementary school students across the province as teachers take part in a one day strike.

This will be the second day off this week and they have already announced 2 more days off next week for the District School Board Ontario North East.

February 11th and 13th if no agreement is reached and right now the two sides are not talking.

Elementary Teachers Federation president Sam Hammond says he hopes the job action will spur the Ford government to get back to the bargaining table.

Talks broke off last Friday.
