Recognizing Volunteers in Regina Public Schools

May 13, 2019 -- Giving credit to our volunteers is important. That’s why, last year, the Board of Education of Regina Public Schools launched the Creating Successful Outcomes Recognition Program. This year, the program is back and we welcome your nominations. Deadline for nominations is June 14, 2019. See details in links below.

This program was designed to provide recognition to school division volunteers who have, over the years, dedicated time, energy and personal resources to help create successful outcomes for Regina Public Schools students. These volunteers have contributed to student successful outcomes.

Nominate a Deserving Staff Member

Nominate a Deserving Staff Member

APRIL 4, 2019 - Regina Public Schools employees make the difference in the lives and the futures of all of our students. A smile from a child, a “thank you” from a parent or a “great job!” from an employer is proof of how we are contributing to the Regina community.

A true indicator of merit, however, is peer and community recognition. Eleven years ago, the Regina Board of Education introduced the Shared Values Recognition Program. Since that time, many exceptional staff members who have most exemplified the Shared Values were recognized and honoured.

Cancellations and Transportation

Thanks to parents, students, and staff we are always learning!

Regina Public Schools has had to, on several occasions, cancel all student transportation because of dangerous, icy conditions on residential streets. We would like to thank all parents, students, school families and, of course, school staff for working through that inconvenience and interruption to daily routines.

We’ve heard from a number of parents, students, staff and partners about what we have done right and what we could do better. We appreciate and welcome all your comments, observations and suggestions!

A number of things to keep in mind:

Severe Weather and the Student

Severe Weather and the Student

Severe weather is a way of life in Saskatchewan. In Regina, it gets cold in the winter. There are severe weather conditions that include snow, ice, blizzards and windchill  that we have come to expect.

NEW. Read this article about what to expect and how to provide feedback.

Going to school is also a way of life for our students and staff, regardless of the weather. Very rarely are Regina Public schools closed during a regular school day. Even in a blizzard! School buses and transportation similarly will run in most temperatures.
