The Toronto public and Catholic school boards want this year’s Christmas break to start later. The boards are seeking the provincial government’s approval to make Dec. 23 the last day of school for 2011. Students would return Jan. 9 after a two-week period. Currently, the school boards have Dec. 16 and Jan. 2 as the last and first days.
