A strike date has been set for Grayslake Elementary District 46 teachers, but both sides expect to continue contract talks later this month in hopes of averting a walkout. Lake County Federation of Teachers union business agent Jim Pergander said the instructors will strike Jan. 16 if a deal on a new contract isn't reached. "Even though we did set a strike date, as before, we hope to settle this at the table," Pergander told the Daily Herald.
