Rural schools

Rural schools follow different school calendars than schools in Whitehorse. Each rural community in the Yukon has a unique set of needs that must be carefully considered when establishing school calendar dates. The 1st and last days of the school year may differ from school to school. Some schools take a 1-week rather than a 2-week spring break. Important dates for each school are identified in the school calendar synopsis. 

Any updates to the school calendar for rural schools will be shared directly with school communities before school starts.
