Negotiations resumed Tuesday night between McHenry teachers and the District 156 school board, but school is already canceled for Wednesday.

MCHENRY, Ill. (WLS) -- There will be no school again Friday for students in McHenry as teachers there continue to strike.

Teachers will head back to the bargaining table Thursday night in an effort to reach a contract deal.

They've been on strike for nearly a week.

Students in McHenry District 156 have been out of school for the past six days.

McHenry High School forfeited its homecoming football game that was set for Friday and postponed Saturday's dance until the teachers can reach an agreement with the district.

The key issues are pay and health insurance.
