Universal Lunchroom Program 2016-17: Information for Families

Background Information

On December 14, 2015, the Regina Public Schools Board of Trustees approved a plan for universal lunchroom supervision.

[From 2008 to present], anecdotally schools have reported a substantial increased workload associated with organizing and maintaining the free lunch hour supervision program. Additionally, schools have reported an increase of pressure on school staffs. Finally, the associated costs with funding a free universal elementary lunch hour supervision program have increased.

(Review of Universal Lunchroom Supervision Program and Implementation Plan for the 2016-17 School Year, December 2015)

Implementation Plan

  1. Parents of all Grades 1 to 8 students staying at noon who do not qualify for transportation by the division will be required to pay a registration fee at the beginning of the school year.
  1. Parents of Grades 1 to 8 students whose child will stay at noon must complete a lunchroom registration form for each child who will be using the lunchroom services of the school.
  1. Parents will identify the following:
    1. Transported or qualify for transportation by the school division (bus/cab), or
    2. Not transported by the school division, full-time usage of lunchroom, or
    3. Not transported by the school division, part-time usage of lunchroom.
  1. Full-time is defined as 51% or more usage; part-time is defined as 50% or less usage.
  1. In the event that a student is not transported or does not qualify for transportation by the school division, the fee rate will be as follows:
    1. Full-time - $100 per year per child
    2. Part-time - $50 per year per child
  1. Students registered at a Regina Public school after January 31st, will pay the pro-rated rate of $50/$25 per child for that school year.
  1. Fees will be paid one time through the school office. A receipt of payment of noon-hour supervision fees will be provided to parents. Parents will be encouraged to pay in full at the beginning of the school year. To support families who may have financial need, there is the option of splitting the payments, half in September and half in February.
  1. If a family moves from one Regina Public school to another, the fee is transferable but is non-refundable.
  1. Where there is financial need, families may contact their school principal.
  1. The maximum paid by one family to supervise all of their children will be $200.  This applies to both full-time and part-time usage, as well as registrations after Jan. 31st.
  1. For further information, please contact your school principal.

Before and After School Program

Dear Parents/Guardians of the Before and After School Program,

Thank you for your continued use of our Before and After School Program operated at Douglas Park School.  We trust you have found this program to be beneficial to your child's development, convenient for your family schedule and provided at a reasonable cost.

In order to ensure the continued viability of the programs, the CommunityAssociation will be raising the program rates effective August 2016.  We will be taking our program in a new direction in the fall and with the closure of our program at St. Andrews, we need to make up for our losses in order to keep our program running.

Starting August 2016, the fees will e $190 for the first child and $140 for each additional child (up to three children in attendance). To ensure you have a spot in the fall, please submit your postdated cheques to Deborah by the end of the school year.

Although we understand such increases provide additional strain on family budgets, such increases are necessary for the continued provision of this program. We feel our programming; even with this increase is still offered at a substantially lower cost than comparable programs in Regina.

We WILL be taking new names on our wait list this coming fall, the easiest way for parents to do that is by emailing us at

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact the Boot Hill Community Association at and we will respond as soon as we are able.

Our kindest regards,

Boot Hill Community Association
