Welcome to the new AVRSB website! Our site has been upgraded to a streamlined look featuring a mobile- and tablet-friendly format, so it can be viewed more easily across a range of devices. Although the look and some aspects of website navigation have changed, you’ll find most of the website content is the same as before. If you’re looking for the “Quick Links” that appeared on the left side of our previous website, you can now find these at the bottom of our home page.
In August 2016 the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board applied to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board (NSUARB) to amend the boundaries of its school board electoral districts. The NSUARB has approved the application. You can view the NSUARB order and decision on their website (visit nsuarb.novascotia.ca, click “Matters and Evidence” and search for "Annapolis Valley Regional School Board"). These changes take effect October 15, 2016.
The first day for Wolfville School students will be Thursday, September 8, one day later than scheduled. An Open House for families will occur September 2 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. as previously scheduled. The change is necessary due to renovation delays, and the additional day will enable staff to set up classrooms and learning spaces. Wolfville School staff look forward to welcoming students during the September 2 Open House and for the start of school on September 8.
