2020-2021 PRSD Calendar

During the March 12, 2020, regular board meeting, the Peace River School Division (PRSD) board of trustees approved the 2020-2021 School Calendar.

Highlights of the calendar include the first day of school for students being August 31, 2020, Christmas Break to run from December 21, 2020, to January 3, 2021, and Easter/Spring Break will run from April 1, 2021, to April 11, 2021. Based on feedback, the following change was made: November 20, 2020, Day in Lieu was moved to October 9, 2020, to allow staff to have a four day weekend for Thanksgiving. The calendar was open for feedback from school communities between December 10, 2019, and February 21, 2020, with a total of 58 responses received.

Following consultations with school communities through email, social media, staff based and School Council meetings, the input was reviewed by the PRSD School Calendar Committee and presented to the board of trustees for approval. The PRSD School Calendar Committee includes the representation of a PRSD parent, teacher, principals, management and representatives from Consiel scolaire du Nord-Quest, Grande Prairie Catholic School Division, and Holy Family Regional Catholic School Division.  

PRSD thanks the Calendar Committee, school communities, and partnering school divisions for their contributions, partnership and input.  Find the 2020-2021 School Calendar with supporting documents here.
