Have your say on the draft 2019-2020 Divisional School Calendar

The Peace River School Division (PRSD) Calendar Committee met on December 4, 2018 to develop a draft of the 2019-2020 PRSD School Calendar. The committee consists of PRSD teachers, administrators, parents, management and representatives from Ecole des Quatre-Vents, Grande Prairie Catholic and Holy Family Catholic Regional School Division. In addition to the feedback of the committee, it is important for PRSD to gather input from our students, staff and parents on the calendar to best meet the needs of our school communities.
