The Halton District School Board is eagerly preparing for the start of the 2016-17 school year, which begins Wednesday, September 7, 2016.


This year, Tuesday, September 6 is designated a professional activity day for school staff. The 2016-17 school calendar, approved by the Board of Trustees in February, received official approval from the Ontario Ministry of Education in April. These dates have been provided to schools and shared with students and parents.


Please refer to the attached for a listing of the dates, visit here or visit the Board’s website at and click on the ‘Calendar’ tab.


The school year calendar is developed with input from the School Year Calendar Committee consisting of representatives from interested and affected groups, including parents. Where possible, this school year calendar is aligned with the Halton Catholic District School Board calendar, to save resources on school bus transportation, which is shared between the boards.
