Humboldt, SK – The Horizon School Division Board of Education has approved the school year calendar for 2018-2019. The calendar can be viewed on the Horizon School Division website, at

Development of the 2018-2019 school year calendar involved consultation with employee groups and the input received during these discussions formed the basis for two proposed calendar options. These draft calendars were shared with principals, staff and School Community Council (SCC) members for feedback, prior to being presented to Horizon's Board of Education. The Board of Education approved the final calendar, upon review of this feedback, at their regular meeting on February 5.

"I thank our stakeholders and staff for their feedback throughout this year's development process for our school year calendar," said Horizon's Director of Education, Kevin C. Garinger. "This consultative process ensures that the calendar meets the diverse needs of the students, families, communities and staff of our system."

Highlights of the 2018-2019 Horizon school calendar include:
  • 197 Operational Days
  • 183 Instructional Days
  • Horizon's Opening Day Celebration will be held on Wednesday, August 29, 2018
