3 Year School Calendar Approved

The Board of Education of School District No.59 approved a three year school calendar at the March board meeting.  Having a three year calendar allows parents, staff, and organizations to plan future events around designated breaks and non-instructional days.  However, the board does have the authority to revise and submit a new calendar to the Ministry if completed by March 31st prior to the commencement of each new school year.  The Board advises anyone looking at planning activities throughout the three years to consult the current calendar for that time period after the March 31st date.
