Note: P.A. Day is a Professional Activity Day for school staff and therefore there are
no classes for students.
The school year calendar is developed with input from the School Year Calendar Committee consisting of representatives from interested and affected groups, including parents. Where possible, this school year calendar is aligned with the Halton Catholic District School Board calendar, to save resources on school bus transportation, which is shared between the boards.
