Regina School Divisions Work on Back-to-Class Plans for September

“The Regina Catholic School Division (RCSD) administration will use the new provincial framework to update our 2021-2022 back-to-school plan,” the RCSD said in a statement posted on its website. “Our intention is to use the lessons of 2020-21 in our updated version while maintaining our commitment to the safety of students and staff.
According to the Government of Saskatchewan’s 2021-2022 Safe Schools Plan, there will be no province-wide COVID-19 restrictions in place in schools and the year will run “as during the pre-pandemic years ”.
“Schools will not be required to have masking, physical distancing or other COVID-19 restrictions used in the 2020-21 school year,” the school safety plan says.
