How We Try to Keep You Informed During the Pandemic

January 20, 2021 -- Ever wondered what happens when there is a case of COVID-19 at a school? A lot of work goes on behind the scenes. After the notification from Public Health, it usually begins with school division and school-based administration identifying potential close contacts in the school. This work is done in consultation with and confirmed by Public Health.

What is contact tracing? We are trying to find out where the staff member or student was on the day that they were contagious. Were they in one classroom or several? Did they go throughout the school or stay in one office? How close did they sit or stand to others and for how long?

Temporary Remote Learning Announced

DECEMBER 7, 2020 -- Regina Public Schools is announcing that all schools will move to temporary remote learning. Effective December 14, 2020, all Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 students in all elementary and high school classes will move from in-class learning to remote learning, and will return to in-class learning on January 11, 2021.

All Regina Public Schools staff will continue to work safely in schools and offices. Teachers and school-based staff will provide ongoing online learning coursework and resources for all students to continue their learning for the weeks of December 14th and January 4th, with the scheduled holiday break taking place from December 21, 2020 to January 1, 2021.

High Schools Move to Level 3

NOVEMBER 6, 2020 – Effective November 12, 2020, Regina Public Schools will be moving to Level 3 in all Regina Public high schools. All Regina Public high school students will attend on alternate days in order to reduce the school capacity by approximately 50% each day. A calendar with the new schedule is linked at the bottom of this article.

The Government of Saskatchewan Safe School Plan provides the opportunity for further safety protocols. We are currently in Level 2 of the Saskatchewan Safe School Plan. The Saskatchewan Health Authority has recommended that this is an appropriate safety measure for our high schools.

Welcome to Sheldon-Williams!

Sheldon-Williams Collegiate officially opened its doors on December 4th, 1956

Originally the school was to be named Riverheights Collegiate, but before it was completed it was named to honor Catherine Evelyn Sheldon-Williams. Catherine Sheldon-Williams attended Normal School and was engaged as a teacher at Wolseley for a short time. She then undertook the management of a business office in that town, returning to the field of education with her work in the Boys' Industrial School. When that school was transferred to Regina, Miss Sheldon-Williams came with it. In 1920 she joined the Department of Education.
