2019-2020 YK1 School Calendars: Second Drafts

Dear parents and guardians,

Thank you for all your comments regarding the 2019-2020 school year calendars. Following a review of these comments and consultation with our administrative team, we have made the following change:

*Moving the STIP Day originally scheduled for December 20, 2019 to January 6, 2020 for JK-8 students*

You can read more about this decision in a parent letter written by YK1 Superintendent Metro Huculak here.

Attached are the (slightly) revised draft calendars. One is for JK-8 students and the other is for 9-12 students at École Sir John Franklin High School. Please review them in full and provide any feedback to yk1@yk1.nt.ca.

2019-2020 YK1 Draft Calendar: JK-8 (176 total student days, 192 total teacher days)

2019-2020 YK1 Draft Calendar: 9-12 (182 total student days, 192 total teacher days)


Key dates include:

First Day of School: September 3, 2019 for all YK1 students

Winter Break: December 21, 2019 to January 5, 2020 inclusive (January 6, 2020 for JK-8 students)

March Break: March 13, 2020 to March 29, 2020 inclusive for all YK1 students

Last Day of School: June 26, 2020 (June 24, 2020 for JK-8 students)


Both draft calendars largely follow our 2018-2019 school calendars based on positive feedback from parents. All school calendars are likely to be approved by the Board of Trustees during their regular meeting scheduled for Tuesday, March 12, 2019.
