PCSD Calendar Modification
Modification to Park City School District’s Schedule Spring Break
There is a significant population within the School District that has either one or both parents working within the resort industry in Park City. These families have someone working in the lodging, restaurant, retail, real estate, ski resort and other tourism based industries.
When spring break is scheduled prior to the scheduled closing dates for all three resorts it requires these families to find alternative care options for their children, many times at a great expense to allow the parents to work. Some families are unable to find affordable resources thereby leaving their children unattended during this time.
As Park City’s summer visitation continues to grow the downtime for those in the tourism based industries dwindles. If spring break was scheduled after the resorts close it would provide time for parents to spend time with their families.
We understand that in the past the resorts have extended their season. This decision is made after the School District’s calendar is set and we understand that would be difficult to reschedule Spring Break in this scenario.
We ask the Park City School Board consider amending their policy of scheduling spring break to include a statement that the break will occur after the scheduled close of all three resorts.
