In-Class Learning Suspended Until End of School Year

May 7, 2020 -- The Government of Saskatchewan announced today that In-class learning will be suspended in Saskatchewan until at least September, 2020.

What this means for Regina Public Schools students and families is that our Supplemental Learning Plan will continue until the end of the school year. In-school classes will not resume by the end of June.

According to a news release issued by the Government of Saskatchewan: Saskatchewan Education’s Response Planning Team encourages everyone in Saskatchewan’s education community to continue with these learning opportunities until the end of the school year, as in-class learning will not take place until at least September...Education’s Response Planning Team is working with education sector partners to begin work on what in-class learning may look like this fall, although the timelines will depend on the safety of everyone in Saskatchewan schools including students, teachers and school staff.  For those students graduating this year, school divisions are working with graduates and staff to consider virtual graduation ceremonies and possible postponements as well, as public health orders remain which prevent more than 10 people from gathering together. Read the release here.

All students are encouraged to continue participating in Supplemental Learning and engaging with ongoing learning, whenever possible. Regina Public Schools continues to plan for the 2020-2021 school year and will communicate with all families with any information relating to the start of the school year, as it becomes available.

In terms of student grads and other activities that are typically planned for May and June, students and families can expect to hear directly from their schools in the coming few weeks about these events that cannot be held as they were, but may be held differently.

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
