NEW Protocol for COVID Notification

Monday, January 10, 2022

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are changing our notification process for possible exposure to COVID-19. While students and families will continue to receive a letter notification of a possible exposure to COVID-19, the letter will no longer be sent by individual class. At the conclusion of each school day, the administration will send a letter listing all classes with a possible exposure. This letter will be sent to all students. We ask that each student, and their families, check this list at the end of each day.

Notification of a Student Absence

It is important for parents/guardians to notify the school of a student absence. In the past, parents have called or emailed the school office. With the addition of Edsby, there are now three methods available to notify the school that your child is absent the day (or will be in the future).

          1. Call the main office at (306) 523-3450

          2. Email the main office at martincollegiate@rbe.sk.ca

          3. Enter the absence on EDSBY

PLEASE ONLY USE ONE METHOD TO NOTIFY THE SCHOOL TO AVOID CONFUSION AND DOUBLE-ENTRY BY SCHOOL OFFICE STAFF.

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.

Driver Education

January 4, 2022 -- The next Online Driver Education class for Martin Collegiate students will start on February 14th and be once again online. Class times will be announced in the coming weeks.  Eligible students will be contacted via Google Classroom closer to to the class start date.
