Every year, LDSB parents and community partners (day cares, municipalities, Public Health, business associations, etc.) are invited to provide survey input on the School Year Calendar. This year, over 700 survey responses were received. The vast majority of survey respondents supported classes running up to and including Friday, December 22. Negative feedback on the calendar was limited to the timing of Christmas, identifying the lateness being an issue with travel, etc. However, there were more respondents favouring the Winter Break starting Saturday, December 23 than opposed. Many respondents also supported Friday PA Days, the PA Day prior to Victoria Day and the absence of any Thursday PA Days.
