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.

New Cold Weather Procedures

Regina Public Schools transportation has  implemented a new cold weather procedure effective in the 2014-2015 school year.

If the wind chill is –40C or higher at 7:00 a.m., transportation for students requiring vehicles equipped with lifts (for students in wheelchairs) will be cancelled. 

All schools will remain open, unless otherwise notified. 

In the event of any cold weather/wind chill cancellations, parents will be notified by school connects telephone or text notification system. Please ensure that your correct contact information has been recorded at your school. 

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.
