At the April 21st Regular Board Meeting, the Holy Family Catholic Regional Division No. 37 (HFCRD) Board of Trustees approved the 2015/16 School Calendar. Once again, the calendar is consistent division-wide to give staff opportunities for collaboration and professional development.
Calendar highlights include:
September 1st – First day of school for students
December 18th – January 3rd – Christmas Break
March 25th – April 4th – Easter Break
June 24th – Last day for students grade 1-9
June 28th – Last day for students grade 10-12
“We are pleased to have another division-wide school calendar for the 2015/16 school year. We’ve received positive feedback from staff about the many opportunities they’ve had to collaborate with schools in our division so we will continue to provide these opportunities,” said Superintendent Betty Turpin. “I would like to thank our school calendar committee for their expertise in creating the calendar.”
When creating the school calendar, the calendar committee considered the following factors: the C2 Committee survey results pertaining to the calendar, Diploma and Provincial Achievement Test dates for 2016, the ATA Professional Development Day date, and the school calendars of neighbouring school divisions for bussing considerations.
