Blended Learning Tips for Students & Parents

COVID-19 has brought many challenges for students, teachers and families as we all try to work together in order to provide the best learning environment possible amidst changing conditions.  

The move to Level 3 protocols for Regina Public High Schools and the implementation of the Alternate Day School Calendar has forced all of us to adapt to a different way of teaching and learning in a blended education model.

See below links to valuable information that will provide tips for students and parents on how to find the most success within a blended learning model.

Enhanced Ventilation in Schools

JANUARY 22, 2021 – Regina Public Schools announces the completion of an important project that will contribute to the health and safety of all students and employees in all Regina Public schools and buildings.

All Regina Public facilities now have enhanced, new air filtration systems. Announced in October and in the Return to School Parent Handbook, the school division has increased airflow and replaced or updated all ventilation systems in all its schools and buildings.

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?

Beware of Thin Ice Conditions

DECEMBER 8, 2020 -- Even though ice has formed on some water surfaces in Regina, residents are reminded to stay away from all bodies of water, including Wascana Lake and creek/storm channels and detention ponds in residential neighbourhoods.

Throughout the winter season, do not walk, ski, skate or play on any body of water. Parents/caregivers are asked to take a few moments to talk with children about this important safety rule.

If you see people, particularly children, close to thin ice, call Regina Police Service at (306) 777-6500. In an emergency involving people or pets, call 9-1-1.
