School Start Up Information Fall 2021

August 29, 2021

Hello Griffons Families! School start up Fall 2021.jpg

Only seven more sleeps until we begin to welcome back our students for the 2021-2022 school year- we cannot wait to see everyone! 

 Earlier this week you should have received a communication from Regina Catholic schools outlining the division’s return to school framework.  One key detail was the mention of the fact that schools could not hold open houses/ meet the teacher/ drop of your backpack evenings.   

 We understand the disappointment of our families to have had this event cancelled and the anxiety it may have caused for students; the staff was very excited to greet the community and to kick off a new school year before classes resumed next Thursday and Friday. 

 In lieu of the Drop-off Your Backpack Night here is what you can expect over the next week; 

  • On Tuesday, August 31st your child(ren)’s classroom teacher(s) will email you with some information about their classroom and some details about the  first day of school. 
  • Additionally, on Tuesday, August 31st, you will receive an email from the school outlining our site-specific Safe Return to School plan.   
  •  By Wednesday, September 1st additional return-to-school information items will be shared by the office. 

A reminder: 
Students in Grades 1 to 8 whose last names begin with A to L begin classes on Thursday, September 2nd. 
Students in Grades 1 to 8 whose last names begin with M to Z begin classes on Friday, September 3rd.   

 Kindergarten parents: please refer to the start dates for your child in the information that was shared with you in June. 

 Mme Vany, Mme Erlendson and the teaching staff return to work August 31st.  The school office is currently open from 8:00am to 4:00pm for registration and general inquiries. 

 Any questions related to bussing should be directed to 

Since we don't have a Drop Off Your Backpack night this year, we realize that students have a lot of supplies to bring and it may be too many for them to bring on the first day of school.  Please see the attached supply list for Kindergarten to Grade 3 students divided over a few days. This should help with overflowing backpacks on the first day of school.  

We thank all of you for your patience as we continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of the ongoing pandemic.  Rest assured that we are working hard to ensure a safe return to learning. 


See you next week!
