Post-Labour Day start to school proposed

The proposed calendar for the 2018-19 school year could see students not back in class until after Labour Day. A consultation for the school calendar, which affects all five boards in the Rainy River and Kenora districts, was conducted last fall. The results of that consultation showed 59 percent of respondents were in favour of students starting after Labour Day, with the other 41 percent wanting students to start before then.
