Have your input on the new 2020-2021 School Calendar

The Peace River School Division (PRSD) Calendar Committee met on December 9, 2019, to develop a draft of the 2020-2021 PRSD School Calendar.  Representatives in attendance this year included: Jennifer Daniels (ATA representative), Kevin Munch (K-6 Administrator representative), Saxon Butte (High School Administrator representative), Brigitte Kropielnicki (Directrice-générale Conseil Nord de Ouest), Karl Germann (Superintendent Grande Prairie Catholic School Division), Betty Turpin (Superintendent Holy Family Catholic Regional Division), Paul Bennett (Superintendent Peace River School Division) and Rhonda Freeman (Secretary-Treasurer Peace River School Division).   In addition to the feedback of the committee, it is important for PRSD to gather input from our students, staff and parents on the calendar to best meet the needs of our school communities.

Below are key dates on the proposed calendar, a link to view the calendar in detail, and ways you can provide your input. 

Key dates on the 2020-2021 Proposed Calendar
