Spring break remains at one week

School District 62 voted to keep the one-week break for the 2012-13 school year.

  • Apr. 25, 2012 12:00 p.m.

During last night’s monthly Board meeting, the SD62 Board of Education approved the standard school calendar for next year, keeping a one-week long spring break in SD62. The one-week spring break will remain in place for the 2012/2013 school year.

“We have heard from parents in our district that a two week spring break could make it more difficult to find or afford childcare,” says Wendy Hobbs, SD62 Board Chair. “As a Board, we have an obligation to do what is right for the community and the school district, and there didn’t seem to be any compelling reason to change the standard calendar.”
