New School Announcement

On Friday, September 18, 2020, provincial dignitaries, as well as Mayor Michael Fougere and SSBA President Shawn Davidson, were part of a second announcement. MLA Gene Makowsky introduced Deputy Premier Wyant, who announced the $47 million investment in the Argyle/St. Pius X joint-use school. Chairperson Gagne spoke on behalf of the Regina Board of Education.

The school will be built on the Argyle School site and will replace the existing Argyle School and the nearby Regina Catholic Schools’ École St. Pius X. The current Argyle School will continue to operate until the construction of the new school is complete. The new joint-use school will cost $47 million and will accommodate 400 Regina Public and 400 Regina Catholic students.

Dismissal Procedures for Elementary Schools

SEPTEMBER 17, 2020—With almost one week of classes for all students completed, we are grateful for school family cooperation that has helped make student school experiences safe and positive.

As we proceed into the school year, we are refining our school-based procedures, including how we release students at the end of the school day. Although we initially communicated that we required parent permission to release students at 3:22 p.m., this is no longer the case.
