In-class Learning to Resume on May 3

April 26, 2021 -- Following consultations and recommendations from Regina Medical Health Officers (RMHO), Regina Public Schools will be returning to in-class learning on Monday, May 3, 2021.

The decision to return to in-class learning follows information from RMHO showing a “distinct reduction” in new infection in both elementary and high school-aged students. RMHO supports the return to in-class learning and continues to monitor case trends.

Beginning on May 3, 2021, all Pre-K to Grade 8 students will be returning to class. Grade 9 to 12 students will also be returning and continuing their schedule of alternate day attendance. More information will be shared directly by schools and teachers.  High school students have been away from class and remote learning since March 24, 2021; elementary students have been remote learning since March 29th. The Spring break was from April 2 to 9, 2021.

Temporary Remote Learning Extended

April 20, 2021 -- Following consultations and recommendations from Regina Medical Health Officers, Regina Public Schools is extending temporary remote learning (Level 4) for all Pre-K to Grade 12.

The tentative return to in-class learning for all students will be on May 3, 2021. Previously, students were scheduled to return to in-class learning on April 26, 2021. Regina Public Schools is consulting with Regina Medical Health Officers regularly and will update the return to school date on a weekly basis. Any future decision will depend on existing COVID-19 and Variant of Concern risk in Regina and area.

Remote Learning Extended

APRIL 1, 2021 -- Regina Public Schools is extending temporary remote learning (Level 4) by two weeks. This decision follows recommendations from Regina Medical Health Officers as a result of continued cases of COVID-19 and the spread of Variants of Concern.

Temporary remote learning at all Regina Public schools and for all Pre-K to Grade 12 students will continue until April 23rd. In-class learning will resume on Monday, April 26, 2021.

This is not a decision we make lightly. We have sought out the advice of local and provincial health authorities; we have listened to our school families, our employees and our Board. We have also consulted with our partners in other Regina-area school divisions. This continuation of temporary remote learning is the most prudent and proactive step we can make to minimize the very real COVID-19 health risk to our students, staff, their families and to our Regina communities.

Nominate a Deserving Staff Member

MARCH 31, 2021 -- Regina Public Schools employees make the difference in the lives and the futures of all of our students. A smile from a child, a “thank you” from a parent or a “great job!” from a colleague are signs of how you are contributing in small and in big ways to the Regina community and its citizens.

Peer and community recognition can be meaningful indicators of merit. More than a decade ago, the Regina Board of Education introduced the Shared Values Recognition Program (SVRP). Since that time, many exceptional staff members who have most exemplified the Shared Values, were recognized and honoured. I Belong; I Respect; I Want to Know and I Am Responsible...these Shared Values have informed our school division’s recent past and, with the support of employees, they will continue to inspire our future as we listen, grow and evolve to meet the needs of our many communities and students.
