This update concerns the scheduled breaks on the NBBI school calendar. We have waited till now to release this information realizing that both International and Interprovincial policies could change. Please read carefully and make note of the following changes.

U.S Thanksgiving:

Previous schedule called for a break from classes on Thursday & Friday, November 26, 27.

Updated Schedule: there will be a break from classes on Friday, November 27.

Explanation: This change shortens the U.S Thanksgiving break by one day. The other day will be added to the beginning of the Christmas break. After careful consideration we felt that giving students one class day off would be a welcomed break and enable students to “catch their breath”, and get some much needed work done. Those who are able can still go home that weekend. Those remaining on campus will be treated to some special activities in honour of our U.S students.

Christmas Break:

Previous Schedule called for Christmas break to begin after exams on Friday, December 18 with students returning to campus on Sunday, January 17, 2021.

Updated Schedule: Christmas break will begin after exams on Thursday, December 17 with those in the Atlantic Bubble returning on Sunday, January 24 and those International students and students from provinces outside the Atlantic Bubble returning on Sunday, January 17.

Explanation: The extra day from the U.S Thanksgiving break will be added to the beginning of Christmas and one week from March break will be added to the back end of the Christmas break. International students and those from provinces outside Atlantic Bubble will still have over 4 weeks for Christmas Break. They will return to self isolate for one week before other students arrive and then have one week of classes online. (This is similar to what happened in September). Information regarding the other week of March break will be released at a later date as various possibilities are being explored.
