Clean Air in Schools

AUGUST 19, 2021 – In January, Regina Public Schools announced that it had enhanced the ventilation systems in all its schools and buildings. In addition to cleaning protocols that were also put in place, the school division is working to minimize health and safety risks to students and staff.

Looking forward to the 2021-22 school year, the enhanced ventilation systems and increased airflow in schools and all buildings are a key component to the safe return to school.

New Portal for a New Year

August 17, 2021 – Over the summer, Regina Public Schools has been adding the finishing touches to a new, comprehensive online student information portal called Edsby. Previously, students, parents and staff used PowerSchool. Access to PowerSchool was terminated at the end of this past school year, and that portal is no longer available.

Edsby is a comprehensive education application that will include more user-friendly features than were previously found in PowerSchool. Specifically, Edsby will allow students, parents and guardians easy, secure access to attendance records, assignments, schedules, course materials, grades, classes, school news and calendars.

Orange Shirt Day 2021

AUGUST 17, 2021 -- The Saskatchewan Ministry of Education has proclaimed September 30, 2021 as Orange Shirt Day. Every year on this day, students and school division staff, as well as the public, remember and honour residential school survivor Phyllis (Jack) Webstad. The colour orange is meaningful because Webstad wore a new orange shirt on her first day of residential school and it was taken away from her and never returned. That action caused Phyllis to feel like she was worth nothing so now people wear orange on September 30th to signify that all children matter!
