If you find yourself asking the question, “When is Spring Break?”, we checked with the calendars of all the main school districts (Victoria, Sooke, and Saanich) and spring break this year is the same for all: March 20 to March 31, 2017. If your child is in a private school, make sure you check the school's website before finalizing any plans.
