Dear Regina Public Schools Families:

Today the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation made an announcement that further impacts Regina Public Schools this week:
1. Last week the STF announced withdrawal of extra curricular activities on March 11th, 12th and 13th. As a result, all
extracurricular activities will be cancelled, including competitions/games, practices, clubs, and other extracurricular
activities that were scheduled to take place before school, over the noon hour, after school, and in the evening on these
days. Classes are unaffected and will continue as usual.
2. There will be a withdrawal of noon-hour supervision on Thursday, March 14, 2024.
• Elementary schools will follow their regular schedule except for an adjusted/extended lunch period. Please note
that we have adjusted the Elementary school hours in response to feedback from families, as follows:
• School starts at the regular time and follows the usual morning schedule.
• 11:45-11:55 a.m. – Transition time for students to leave school.
• 11:55-12:55 p.m. – Lunch break. All elementary schools will be closed.
o Students who are bused/transported to school will be transported home over the lunch break.
Specific transportation times will be communicated directly to families on Wednesday.
o Parents/caregivers who can transport their students back to school for afternoon classes and pick
them up at the end of the school day are encouraged to do so.
• 12:55-1:05 – Transition time for students to return to school.
o Students should not arrive back at school prior to 12:55 pm.
• 1:05 p.m. – Afternoon classes begin for students and continue until the regular end of the school day.
• There will be no bus/transportation service at the end of the school day, therefore parents/caregivers of
bused/transported students who return for the afternoon must pick up students after school.

• The high school schedule will compress to a 5-period day (no advisory) in the morning and students will be
dismissed for the day at 12:50 p.m. as follows:
• 7:35-8:25 Early bird classes (if currently scheduled)
• 8:30-9:20 Period 1  
• 9:25-10:15 Period 2  
• 10:20-11:10 Period 3  
• 11:15-12:05 Period 4  
• 12:10-12:50 Period 5
• 12:50-1:00 Transition time for students to leave the school for the day.
• 2:00-3:00 students may return to school for self-directed work or may work on assigned materials at
home. Teachers will be available to support learning through Edsby, email or in-person.
All field trips, charter buses for full band, Campus Regina Public transportation and all other bus charters are cancelled on
March 14, 2024. School-age care programs (Before and After programs) will operate as usual.
If you have general questions or concerns, please email the school division at or 306-523-3000. If you have
questions about the specific activities impacted at your student’s school, please contact the school directly.
