At last night’s meeting, the Board of Education passed the 2014-15 school calendar.  This calendar contains a two week spring break.  The spring break dates, March 9 – 20, 2015, will coincide with our neighbouring school districts.  To facilitate a two week spring break, schools will add 8 minutes per day to their schedules.  The process to determine the additional 8 minutes of instructional time will be finalized shortly.  The Board wishes to thank parents, partner groups, staff, and community members for their participation in the public consultation process.  Please click here to view the 2014-2015 school calendar in list form, or in calendar view.
