2015-16 School Year – York Region District School Board


In an effort to help you plan ahead for this school year, we are sharing a calendar that provides an overview to the 2015-2016 school year, and may support you in planning for family holidays, medical or dental appointments and other events, while minimizing disruptions to your child’s learning. To view calendars and guides simply click on the bold links below:

The 2015-16 YRDSB School Year Calendar outlines the school year by identifying all regular school days, school holidays, professional activity and training days, and early release days. We hope this will help you as you schedule events in the weeks and months to come.

All York Region District Schools follow a Day 1-5 Cycle Calendar; for your reference, the 5 Day Cycle Calendar 2015-2016 provides an overview of the 5-day cycle for the entire year. Each morning, the day in the cycle will be shared over the announcements as a reminder for all students.

As well, the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) has designated May 25 to June 8 2016 as the period during which Primary and Junior Division Provincial Assessments are to occur. We would kindly ask parents and guardians of students in Grade 3 and Grade 6 to avoid booking any appointments or trips during this period. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the office. We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing everyone back on September 8th!

Also please see the attached YRDSB Guide to the School Year 2015-16. This guide provides important information about the York Region District School Board and our schools. It includes information about who to contact if you have a question or a concern, school life, homework and parent engagement, health and safety, and Board policies and procedures.
