2017-18 Important Dates
We know the importance of planning ahead. Please see important dates listed below for the 2017-18 school year. A full calendar will be released later this spring.
Winter Break 2017-18
Wednesday, December 20 – Tuesday, January 2
Due to the federal holidays falling on Monday, December 25, and Monday, January 1, Breck’s winter break has shifted to accommodate the calendar dates. Students still receive the same number of days off from school, but begin and end winter break mid-week.
Spring Break 2018
Monday, March 19 - Wednesday, April 4
Breck will, as always, take the last two weeks of March for Spring Break. At the end of break, teachers will reconvene for three days of professional development workshops sponsored by the Peter Clark Center for Teaching & Learning. All faculty will be trained on the latest in Mind, Brain, and Science education, improving the student and teaching experience at Breck. Students will return to class on Thursday, April 5.
To accommodate for the three development days without decreasing school days, students will be in class on the Monday following Thanksgiving break as well as the Friday of Presidents’ Day weekend.
Breck is committed to training our entire faculty in the neurodevelopmental framework for teaching all kinds of minds. This one-time, school-wide training will only happen in 2018. New staff will be trained during their initial onboarding at Breck.
