Reimagining Instructional Time/Instructional Day
An Arctic Academy day is a day where students stay home and work on activities and assignments and teachers report to work.
On an “Arctic Academy and Beyond” day, a SchoolMessenger call will be sent out to the homes of our students and employees advising that this day will be an “Arctic Academy and Beyond” Day.
While we think of an "Arctic Academy" day being a cold, wintery, snowy day, it is possible to have one for other reasons, or for individual schools. An example of this, occurred in December of 2016, when students at Suncrest Primary had "Arctic Academy & Beyond" days prior to the break - so that time was provided for staff and teachers to move into the new Suncrest Elementary school and get it ready for students when they returned after the winter break.
