Friday, January 20, 2023, is a professional development (PD) day for elementary school staff.

Students will not attend school, in person or virtually.

Unfortunately, all board-operated Extended Day and Youth Development programs will also be closed. This is due to staff shortages that would impact our ability to meet staffing ratios, which are required under the Child Care and Early Years Act and our program licensing. We apologize for the impact this may have on families. Fees will be waived for this day.

For community-operated before and after-school programs, please verify closure dates with your provider.

The focus of the PD Day will be teacher-directed assessment and evaluation activities. Paraprofessional staff (EAs/CYWs) will be participating in full-day centrally-run learning activities that will include training opportunities.
