DRM 3 Year School Calendar

Dear Parents/Staff

As you may know, the district completed a consultation process in the fall regarding the preparation of school calendars. Please find attached the draft School Calendars for each of the next three school years. These calendars were built in constultation with DPAC, school PAC’s, school and district staff, and with the feedback received from the school calendar survey that was available to all parents and staff in December.

One item to note is for the 2020-2021 calendar, only one week, of the two week spring break, is aligned with Vancouver Metro area school districts. The reason for this is that consultation feedback indicated that it was preferable to include the Easter Holiday in the Spring Break.

Please review the local school calendars and feedback can be provided to your school principal. These draft calendars will be presented to the Board of Education for approval at their regular March public meeting and the final approved calendars will be sent to you at that time.

We plan to run all bus routes scheduled as normal, however, if our
bus routes are disrupted we will send out communications immediately.
