Working Together for Students

The Annapolis Valley Regional School Board believes in "Working Together for Students". Our Board members and staff are committed to working with parents, guardians and school community members to provide a positive, safe and healthy school environment that supports student success. We encourage families to take part in events at school, to communicate with school staff about your child’s learning, and to get involved in your school’s parent/guardian support group (School Advisory Council, Home and School Association, Parent-Teacher Association, etc.).

The links below will connect you to important information for families and answers to many frequently asked questions.  If you have other questions or need more information, please contact your child’s school, the AVRSB Regional Office 902-538-4600 (toll-free 1-800-850-3887), or your Board Member.

School Year Calendar


The 2015-2016 School Year Calendar is now available. This calendar highlights major dates such as holidays, March break and marking days. Your child's school may also schedule occasional site-based in-service days; check with your school office or look in school newsletters for school-specific in-service days. You can also check your school's online calendar for school-specific events.

Student Transfers


If you wish to send your child to a school other than the one serving your home address, AVRSB has a process to apply for a student transfer.




Storm Days/School Cancellations


Safety is always our first priority. The decision to cancel or change bus transportation and/or school schedules is taken very seriously, and we appreciate that changes like these have an impact on families. To help keep you informed, there are several ways you can receive notices on cancellations or schedule changes due to road or weather conditions, or other unforseen circumstances.
