All of our schools are closed for Teachers’ and Staff Association conventions on Thursday, Feb. 16 and Friday, Feb. 17 and for Alberta Family Day on Monday, Feb. 20. Many of our system offices are also closed for this time as staff attend their convention learning sessions and for Family Day.
System calendars establish common start and end days, and 10 system-wide days for schools to schedule parent-teacher conferences, professional development and organizational days. Schools may identify additional non-instructional days, late entries or early dismissals in consultation with their school community and area director, and in alignment with Alberta Education and CBE requirements for instruction.
While most of our schools follow the traditional calendar, a number use a modified calendar with an earlier start to the school year and additional breaks throughout the year. They're listed below.
