The 2017-2018 school year begins for students on Thursday, September 7, 2017. Information about this year’s schedule of school days is available from the Provincial School Calendar.
Many bus routes, especially in the Charlottetown area, have been re-designed to accommodate zoning changes that have been approved by the Board of Directors of the Public Schools Branch. The redesigned bus routes may result in students traveling on different buses and at different times in September than in the current school year. Parents should check their September bus information using the bus stop utility on this website even if they have not been affected by the zoning changes. The information can be accessed at the following link: http://www.gov.pe.ca/edu/psb/bus-stop-search/. This website will be available on June 26.
Open House sessions have been scheduled in the majority of schools where re-zoning will affect that school’s student population in September, 2017. The open house sessions have been arranged to allow new students and their parents to tour the school, receive school related information, and pose any questions they might have. The dates and times for these sessions, as well as an overview of the plans for each night, are outlined on the Open House Sessions – Transition 2017 page
Participation in these open house sessions is not mandatory, but is recommended, as this opportunity will provide students and parents with school related information about the student’s new school. Open house sessions are not being provided in all schools, but rather, only the schools impacted by the recently-announced re-zoning.
