School board approves two week break

The two-week spring break will continue through the next school year in the Fraser Cascade.

The school board voted in favour of a two-week break at Tuesday night's meeting, at the district's boardroom in Hope. A tentative calendar was also approved, with the break planned for Monday, March 11 to Friday, March 22. Easter weekend is shortly after the break, giving students another four days off (March 29 to April 1).

The district sent out the calendar shortly after the meeting, with a note that the calendar could change.

A two-week break is a cost-saving initiative that began a few years ago in the Fraser Cascade District. Chilliwack School District also gave the two week break a try last school year, but returned to a one-week break recently.
