School District 60 surveys spring break

By Christine Rumleskie



School District 60 is looking to tweak its annual spring break.

The district’s website currently has a three-question survey, that’s looking for feedback from parents on the current break.

Superintendent for School District 60, Larry Espe, says the board held a similar survey last year.

Almost 700 people completed the survey last year.

Espe says most parents indicated they weren’t too concerned that the spring break doesn’t coincide with the rest of the province.

However, he says parents were strongly in favor of a consistent two-week long break, and are hoping that the extended break gets linked to the Easter holiday whenever possible.

He adds the lengthened break will allow more family time for both teachers and students.

Espe says this year’s survey will give the board direction on future spring break scheduling.

This year, spring break will run two weeks, starting March 22nd.
