School Calendar Changes for Grades 6-12
Hello PRS Families.  This is Mr. Cameron calling to inform you of an important change in our school calendar.  This year Anglophone East School District implemented a number of half day professional learning days for teachers.  The schedule for these days has changed for high schools and some 6-12 schools, PRS being one of them.  These half days have been moved ahead one day to Wednesdays for our 6-12 students. 
This means students in grades 6 to 12 will be dismissed at 11:30 am on Wednesday, September 20th. This does not apply to Elementary students.  Their half day remains on September 21st as originally scheduled.
This change was implemented today by Anglophone East School District to help facilitate transportation of students on these half days.
