It's strange because my school board (actually both in Ottawa) have said the first day of school will be September 3rd and it was approved by the Ministry, so now I am unsure what will happen. I hope it's the 3rd as I booked time off to take him and make sure it goes well. Though I hope we get the class lists before hand as well as who his teachers will be and such. The normal way (they put up lists on the school windows and everyone crowds around) wouldn't really work. The teachers are supposed to get 3 gets to "learn what they need to know".From what I understand, the week of September 1st is designated for
PD days, so I guess teachers and staff would potentially get up to one full week of necessary training.
First day of school for students will be on September 8th, after the Labour Day weekend. I would be surprised to hear any schools would be starting before then.
