The Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon (CSC Nouvelon), Rainbow District School Board (RDSB), Sudbury Catholic District School Board (SCSDB) and Conseil scolaire du Grand Nord have approved the School Year Calendar for 2023-2024.
The four school boards have worked together to produce a common calendar for many years, facilitating the co-ordination of services such as student transportation. Each board adopted the calendar following its own consultation process. The calendar will now be submitted to the Ontario Ministry of Education for final approval.
The 2023-2024 school year calendar will be the same for all English and French-language schools in Greater Sudbury, Espanola, Manitoulin Island and Sudbury East (including Warren, Markstay, Noëlville, St. Charles and Killarney).
The calendar will also apply to CSC Nouvelon and Conseil scolaire du Grand Nord schools in Elliot Lake, Blind River, Spanish, Sault Ste. Marie, Wawa, Chapleau, Dubreuilville and Hornepayne.
The 2023-2024 school year for students will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 6, following the Labour Day weekend. There will be no early dismissal. Please note: The day after the Labour Day weekend - Tuesday, Sept. 5 - is a professional activity day.
In addition to the first day of school, the School Year Calendar includes the dates for the Christmas Break, the March Break, statutory holidays, secondary school examination days and professional activity days in 2023-2024.
