*NEW: Winter Break Extended to Jan. 10, 2022

December 30, 2021

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians, 

Please see the following message from Superintendent Dr. Cheryl Gilmore, Re: Provincial Announcement for Winter Break Extension to January 10th: 

At 5:30 p.m. on December 30, Minister LaGrange announced in a news conference that Winter break for students is extended until January 10th. It was also stated that diploma examinations for high school students are cancelled given the disruption in learning caused by this extension. The extension of winter break means that there will not be online learning delivered at home. Minister LaGrange said that “the extended break will give school authorities time to gather additional data to assess staffing implications and the potential operational impacts of the current COVID-19 situation.” The minister committed to providing an update regarding the January 10th scenario at some point next week. I know that this announcement causes stress in households as you try to secure childcare for next week. I am so sorry for that. As a school system we are committed to preparing for whatever the return to school looks like for January 10th. I will keep you informed as we navigate this challenge. The full press release for this announcement can be found here
