In January 2018, the school district’s School Calendar Committee was convened to develop a School Calendar for the 2018-2019 school year.

In accordance with the Ministry of Education’s School Calendar Regulation, non-instructional days were scheduled in the 2018-2019 school year for the purpose of providing teachers with an opportunity to participate in discussions and activities relating to the implementation of the curriculum.

The Board of Education approved the 2018-2019 School Calendar at its February 28, 2018, Regular Board Meeting with final approval recently received from the Ministry of Education.

The first day of school for the 2018-2019 school year will be Wednesday, September 5, 2018.

Please find attached a copy of the 2018-2019 School Calendar with non-instructional days, early dismissal days, spring and winter breaks, etc. A backgrounder page is also provided outlining details of the calendar for your convenience. The 2018-2019 School Calendar was also shared with the school district’s staff and partner groups.

Further information regarding the 2018-2019 School Calendar can be obtained by contacting Carole Gagnon, Executive Assistant at the Board of Education Office at (250) 638-4401.
