Surrey extends spring break for next year, too
Surrey public school students enjoying their time away from class during spring break this week can rest assured they'll get a two-week hiatus again next year.
For the fifth-consecutive year, trustees have decided to extend spring break for 2014. It will run from March 17-28 next year.
The Surrey Board of Education estimates about $500,000 will be saved due to the reduced instructional days.
Trustees approved Surrey's 2013-14 school calendar Thursday evening (March 14).
Other non-instructional (or Pro-D) days during the year include: Sept. 23, Oct. 25, Nov. 8, Feb. 21, May 2 and May 26.
