FEBRUARY 25, 2021 -- 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 a colleague are signs of how you are contributing in small and in big ways to the Regina community and its citizens.
FEBRUARY 9, 2021 -- Regina Public Schools will once again be offering a full selection of career pathway opportunities for Grades 11 and 12 students through Campus Regina Public (CRP). Because of COVID protocols during the 2020-21 school year, CRP was temporarily closed and opened its doors to provide a space for eSchool K to Grade 12 teachers to facilitate online learning and instruction. We are happy to announce that our CRP teachers will be dusting off the table saws, powering back up the lights, firing up the hair dryers and accepting rusty Pontiac Sunfires for the 2021-22 school year.
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?
JANUARY 11, 2021 -- The Saskatchewan Health Authority has provided an updated poster called, "Does Your Child Have Symptoms?" that can be accessed by CLICKING HERE.

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.
