Students in Saskatoon Public Schools will begin the 2017-18 school year immediately following the Labour Day weekend.
The first day of classes for students in both elementary and high school will be Tuesday, Sept. 5, with the final day for students on June 27, 2018.
The calendar includes the following breaks:
- Winter Break: Last day of classes is Friday, December 22; classes resume Monday, January 8
- February Break: Last day of classes is Friday, February 16; classes resume Monday, February 26
- Spring Break: Last day of classes is Thursday, March 29; classes resume Monday, April 9
Beginning in September, Thursday class schedules will be the same as all other school days. The time previously used by school staff on Thursdays for meetings has been reallocated for full professional development (PD) days. Student instructional time remains the same.
For elementary schools, this will result in two additional PD days at the end of August prior to the start of the school year. For secondary schools, four PD days are being added, two of which will also be used in August before classes begin. All elementary and secondary schools will have PD days scheduled at the same time.
