At the February 17, 2016 Board meeting, trustees of the Halton District School Board approved
the school year calendar proposed dates for 2016-2017. This co-ordinated with the Halton Catholic District School Board whenever possible. Final approval of the calendar by the Ministry of Education is anticipated later in spring 2016.

Fri. June 30, 2017 – Last day of instruction elementary P.A. Day (Secondary only)

Note: P.A. Day is a Professional Activity Day for school staff and therefore there are no classes for students.

These dates have been provided to schools to be shared with students and parents, and they are also posted on the Board’s website at www.hdsb.ca under the “Calendar” tab.

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.
