FIRST DAY OF RETURN
With the first day of school set for September 1, students at Regina Public School will see their return to school staggered. Students will attend school at different times during the first week. Exact times and details will be available soon.
NEW RECESSION TIME
The hours before and after recess normally see students gathered in hallways and in smaller spaces. The morning break will now be from 8:53 a.m. to 9:08 a.m. and the afternoon break from 3:22 p.m. to 3:37 p.m.
Morning and afternoon breaks will be scheduled and classes will take turns outside to reduce physical contact.
“Some Regina public schools have successfully used fitted recesses for many years. They can provide teachers with more flexibility with instructional time and playing time, ”RPS said in the press release.
CIRCULATION OF SCHOOL ZONES
Regina Public Schools advise parents not to drive or stop vehicles within one block of school. Students are encouraged to walk, bike or run to school.
LIMIT SCHOOL VISITORS
Public access to schools will be restricted. Electronic and telephone communication with parents is encouraged. Visitors will be requested to contact the school before arriving. Guest speakers and presentations are prohibited until further notice.
In a tweet, Regina Public Schools said they hope to release similar guidelines for high schools soon and that parents will hear directly from the school board next week.
