Additional Professional Activity (PA) Day

April 8, 2016

As a result of the recent settlements with teachers’ federations in the province, school boards across Ontario received direction from the Ministry of Education to add an additional PA day to their 2015-2016 school year calendar. In response to this requirement, the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board (SMCDSB) has identified Friday, April 8, 2016 as a PA day for all of its schools (elementary and secondary).

Teachers and other staff will be using this PA day for occupational health and safety training as well as professional learning on Ministry of Education priorities.

We ask all parents and guardians to please make note of this change on their calendars. We are communicating this date well in advance so parents and guardians have ample time to make any necessary arrangements for their families.
