High Schools Move to Level 3

NOVEMBER 6, 2020 – Effective November 12, 2020, Regina Public Schools will be moving to Level 3 in all Regina Public high schools. All Regina Public high school students will attend on alternate days in order to reduce the school capacity by approximately 50% each day. A calendar with the new schedule is linked at the bottom of this article.

The Government of Saskatchewan Safe School Plan provides the opportunity for further safety protocols. We are currently in Level 2 of the Saskatchewan Safe School Plan. The Saskatchewan Health Authority has recommended that this is an appropriate safety measure for our high schools.

New Mask Requirements

NOVEMBER 5, 2020 – Effective Monday, November 9, 2020, all Regina Public Schools students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 will be required to wear a non-medical  mask in school and on school buses. This change comes at a time when all schools and the school division are working to focus on limiting health risks to students and staff and to minimize disruptions to student learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please read the letter to all parents and guardians from Director of Education Greg Enion. It explains the background and the rationale for this decision.

School Closed Until Week of Nov. 23

NOVEMBER 12, 2020 – UPDATE Due to additional cases of COVID-19 at Thom Collegiate, closure of the school will extend until Friday, November 20, 2020. All affected families have been contacted.

All students will continue to participate in remote learning. All in-person classes resume the week of Monday, November 23, on whichever days are designated for each student on the Level 3 school schedule.

______________

NOVEMBER 5, 2020 –  As of today, a number of Thom Collegiate students were diagnosed with COVID-19. Due to these new cases and recent cases, Thom Collegiate will be closed to all students until November 13th. Students who are considered close contacts will be called.

COVID-19 Case at Thom

OCTOBER 23, 2020 -- On Friday, October 23rd, the Saskatchewan Health Authority informed Regina Public Schools that there was a case of a student with COVID-19 at Thom Collegiate. For the safety of all Thom Collegiate students and staff, we have closed two classrooms for the day at the school.

School and division administration called all families with students in the affected classes. Today, letters will go out to all Thom Collegiate families. If there are any additional close contacts at the school, they will be contacted directly by Public Health. A close contact is someone who has been within two metres (six feet) of someone for a cumulative 15 minutes.
