April 2024 PA Day Date Change

December 13, 2023

TW - APRIL PA Day.pngDue to a total solar eclipse that is predicted to occur on April 8th, 2024, the new date for the April PA Day is Monday, April 8, 2024.​ 

Parts of the ALCDSB ​​will be in the path of totality, which means that these regions will experience complete darkness at approximately 3:20 in the afternoon. In addition, watching the solar eclipse without proper eye protection may cause vision damage.

The duration of the eclipse will be approximately between the hours of 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. As a regular school day, this will present several challenges to staff and students in our schools with respect to transportation and safety.

This date change allows us to ensure the safety of all students so they are not walking home or on a bus during these hours. As always, the safety and well-being of our students is our priority.

After consultation with our co-terminus school boards and Tri-Board Transportation Services, the ALCDSB is moving the April PA Day from Friday, April 12, 2024 to Monday, April 8, 2024, with the support of the ALCDSB Board of Trustees and the approval of the Ministry of Education.

More information will be shared closer to April. For all PA dates and the full school year calendar, please click here.​
