Letter to families and students

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:

Thank you for your patience during the seven-day school pause.  As it has become increasingly clear that the closure of schools across the province is continuing indefinitely. Our first priority continues to be health and safety for students, staff and families.

During this time, Regina Public Schools has been working with the Saskatchewan Education Response Planning Team (ERPT), to develop a supplemental learning plan that will provide opportunities for students to continue learning. Please follow this link for a current document from the ERPT addressed to Saskatchewan Families.

That plan is now ready to roll out.

Starting Monday, March 30, 2020, school staff will begin to provide details of education services and resources that will be available to Regina Public Schools students. You can expect to receive information directly from teachers and school administrators about available resources that we will be providing students. For your benefit, we will also be posting this material on our website and school websites, when possible.

We ask for your patience. Staff will do their best to contact students and families in a timely manner.

We do not expect schools to be re-opened in the foreseeable future.

My commitment to you, as Director of Education, is that we will strive to provide students and families with ongoing support and resources. Please look for further information to be shared on Monday, March 30th, 2020 and beyond.

In health, and in learning.

Greg Enion
Director of Education

Safety notice for students, family and community members

During this period of school closure and social distancing due to COVID-19, it is very important that all of us take the sometimes difficult steps to not expose ourselves and others to unnecessary risk.

The COVID-19 virus can linger on surfaces such as plastic and metal for several days and could potentially be transmitted by playing in school playgrounds and touching playground equipment that others have touched. This includes slides, swings, teeter-totters, jungle gyms and other equipment. None of this equipment is being cleaned or sanitized while schools are closed and can pose a health risk to anyone that uses them.

Please do not use this play equipment until further notice.

It is difficult to tell a young person that they cannot play, that is perhaps one of the hardest parts of the current requirements to practice social distancing. We are confident, however that all our school families and communities can help young people find other ways to play, to exercise, and to learn.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.  

Schools Closed Until Further Notice

MARCH 19, 2020 -- As of Friday, March 20, 2020, all classes in Regina Public Schools will be suspended indefinitely and school buildings will be closed until further notice. Please continue to check our website and twitter feed (@regpublicschool) for news and updates.

Our utmost priority is that all of our staff, students and families remain safe and healthy!
