McHenry teachers strike ends

Teachers are on strike in McHenry High School District 156.

Teachers in McHenry County approved a new contract Monday, ending a strike that had kept thousands of students out of the classroom since October 1, 2015. Students will return to class on Tuesday.

Over the weekend, negotiators reached a tentative deal between the teachers and McHenry District 156. It was approved Monday.

At issue: salary and insurance benefits.

During the strike, homecoming festivities, including the football game and dance, were postponed.
