Due to the fact January 1st falls on a Saturday, doesn't that make Monday, January 3rd a stat holiday? Not sure how that applies to schools but most of the province will be shut down, including most government offices and subsequently, most parents will be at home. Therefore, it might be prudent to reconvene on Tuesday, January 4.

COVID has definitely allowed us to be flexible with our calendar this past year. I would love to see the opportunity to change the XMAS break instead of the current draft - changing to Wednesday Dec. 22nd (last instructional day) to Thursday Jan. 6th (First Instructional day back) - allowing a few more days After New Year's Day to spend with family rather than all the time before Christmas. Most years this would not be an issue but 2021-2022 would be a good year to try a mid week end/start. Thank you for your consideration and allowing staff input.
