News Regarding Feb.27 & Feb.28

Dear Regina Public Schools Families:

On the weekend, the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation made two announcements that impact Regina Public Schools:


  1. There will be a withdrawal of extracurricular activities on Tuesday, February 27, 2024This is in addition to the withdrawal of extracurricular today, February 26, 2024, that we communicated late last week. 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 both Monday and Classes are unaffected and will continue as usual.


  1. There will be a withdrawal of noon-hour supervision on Wednesday, February 28, 2024. As a result, the school day is being adjusted and students will be dismissed at 12:00 Noon in elementary schools and 12:50 pm in high schools.


The elementary school schedule will be as follows:

  • Regular start time until 12:00.
  • Schools will be closed from 12:00 noon until 2:00 pm. Please ensure students do not return to school prior to 2:00 pm. The extended break is necessary to accommodate transportation schedules, teacher preparation time and the lunch break.
  • 2:00 pm to end of regular school day – Schools reopen for students who are able to return. If your student(s) will not be returning to school, please enter the absence in Edsby or contact the school.

The high school schedule will compress to a 5-period day (no advisory) in the morning as follows:

  • 7:35-8:25 - EARLY BIRD CLASS (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
  • 1:00 - Students must leave the school
  • 2:00-3:00 - Access to teachers via email, Edsby or prearranged phone

As a result of the adjusted day, end of day transportation on Wednesday will begin just prior to early dismissal. Specific adjusted pick up and drop off transportation times will be communicated to individual families of transported students by the end of day tomorrow. If elementary students choose to return to school from 2:00 pm to end of regular school day, transportation home will not be provided. All field trips, charter buses for full band, CRP and all other bus charters are cancelled.

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 on Monday morning.
