2018-2019 Parent School Calendar Survey

For the current school year (17-18) the decision was made to start school a little later in August (moved from Aug 16 to Aug 20) and convert the first weekend in October from a 4 day weekend to a regular school week.  It is now time to evaluate this decision, as well as other calendar issues, and the TFSD Calendar Committee wants your input!  Please take the time to complete this short survey.  Your input is extremely valuable to this process.  Please remember that we want to ensure our calendar maximizes the time for student learning and is set according to what is best for students.
