In August 2016 the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board applied to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board (NSUARB) to amend the boundaries of its school board electoral districts. The NSUARB has approved the application, with changes taking effect October 15, 2016. 


The first day for Wolfville School students will be Thursday, September 8, one day later than scheduled. This change is necessary due to renovation delays. An Open House for families will occur September 2 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. as previously scheduled.
