2023-24 School Calendar now available for feedback

The 2023-24 proposed school calendar was developed in accordance within the requirements of the School Act and consultation with Peace River South Teachers Association. The calendar reflects the current collective agreement language around the start, end and break times with special approval for the two-week spring break. 

The proposed calendar reflects the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30th, 2023, as a federal statutory day until further direction is received from the Province.

The proposed calendar is being circulated to allow public input. All feedback will be considered and a final calendar will be adopted by the Board of Education on March 15, 2023. 

Feedback must be made in writing to Jan Proulx (japroulx@sd59.bc.ca) by March 3, 2023 to be considered.

Be Prepared for Winter

The Transportation Department is reminding all students to have appropriate winter clothing when they ride the school bus. This will include but not limited to winter coats, winter footwear, head wear and hand protection.

In winter driving conditions, it is important to always be prepared for the unexpected.  This is to ensure the safety of all school bus passengers if there were to be any delays while the bus is on route.
