Safe School Procedures

As you visit the school you will notice signs on our main entrance door asking visitors and families to check in at the office.

The safety of your child is most important to us.

Families of students in PreKindergarten, Kindergarten and Discovery Pre-School will be encouraged to pick up their child at the classroom entrance doors.

Families with children in Grades 1 to 8 will be asked to meet their child on the playground

or to wait at the office for their child.


Thank you for your cooperation as we work together to ensure the safety of all of our children.

In the event of a transportation system-wide transportation cancellation or school closure due to weather, all local Regina TV, newspaper and radio outlets will broadcast this information both on the web and on the air.
