Calendar Changes for SHSD



Link to revised 2020/2021 School Year Calendar


On November 9th, the provincial government announced that they were adding three professional development days to the 2020/2021 school year in order for schools “to focus on collaborative planning as they shift and adapt to remote learning”.  The province indicated that they wanted two of the days added prior to the Christmas break and the other day added in the second semester.  Within Southwest Horizon School Division, the two additional days prior to Christmas will take place on Monday, November 30th and Monday, December 7th.  There will be no school for students on these days. The third non-instructional day will be held on February 8, 2021.

(Please note that November 27 is also a non-instructional day as published on our calendar in late August.)

In summary, students will not attend school on November 27, November 30, December 7 or February 8. Our apologies for the inconvenience this creates for families.  We sincerely appreciate your continued support as we work together to meet the challenges of the pandemic.
