Next School Year To Begin After Labor Day

Posted on Wednesday, February 14, 2018 09:10 AM

The new school year will start after Labor Day.

Trustees with the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board approved the change at last night's monthly meeting.

Superintendant of Education Joan Kantola says they have over 15 hundred responses to their on-line survey and about 59 percent of those who voted wanted the later start to the school year.

The Kenora Catholic District School Board is expected to approve the change at their open meeting next week.
