Langley School District is asking for community feedback on whether to change its calendar to better align holiday breaks with those in other school districts.

In years past, parents have complained that Langley’s spring break didn’t match others in the area, so now they are trying to change that.

Superintendent Suzanne Hoffman told the board of education on Tuesday that she doesn’t expect a lot of concern from parents on this.

And she made it clear that this isn’t an attempt to revisit a year-round school calendar.

“We heard, loud and clear, ‘no’ to year-round schooling.  Thousands of students take our summer sessions. That is our way to provide a balanced calendar.”
