March 18, 2020 -- Message from Director of Education, Greg Enion.
Over the past few days, our everyday routines of school, work and learning have been first disrupted and now cancelled. As many of us are parents, we too have had many of the feelings of uncertainty and concern.
The absence of information often creates anxiety. To keep all our school families informed. I would like to share some information that your school division does have. Please know that we do not yet have any information relating to what's next for students, especially those requiring credits, or who are graduating this year. My promise to you is that we will share this information, the moment we have it.
With respect to our schools:
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!
March 20, 2020 -- The Saskatchewan Education Response Planning Team just posted this letter for all parents and families to read. Please review the document here.
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.
March 27, 2020 -- Parents, Guardians and Students.
Here is a video from Director of Education, Greg Enion, that briefly describes what to expect in the next few weeks as Regina Public Schools returns to providing learning opportunities for all students.
Starting Monday, March 30, 2020, school education professionals and administration will begin to contact school families with specific return to learning information.
Please continue to watch this website, as well as the websites of all our schools for updates and details as they become available.
