Dear SSIS Parent,
As you know, your input is important to us, and we pride ourselves on the involvement of our parents in decisions we make about the school.
In October, we asked for your feedback on multiple versions of the 2022-2023 school year calendar, as we faced a unique situation of seven days of instruction, split between two weeks, between Winter Break and Tet holidays.
Reviewing feedback from parents, as well as faculty, we have finalized the 2022-2023 calendar. Please note that the number of instructional days for your children is always the same, 180 instructional days.
Combined Winter Break and Tet Holiday, SY 2022-2023
The SSIS school community greatly values both the Winter Break and the Tet Holiday. Starting and ending school at regular times is also important for community stability and consistency. Thus, the best option for the 2022-2023 school year calendar is a combined Winter Break and Tet holiday with shorter Fall and Spring breaks.
You can see the final 2022-2023 school year calendar here.
We are pleased with this solution as it balances the semesters, maximizes instructional time for high school students preparing for external exams, which begin in May, and ends the school year as planned to give everyone the traditional summer holiday.
Should you have any questions regarding the 2022-2023 school year calendar, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com
Associate Head of School for Teaching and Learning
