The Regina Catholic School Division’s Board of Trustees approved a plan to charge elementary school lunchroom supervision fees beginning in the 2022-2023 school year. The cost for a full-time student (grades 1-8) is $70/year, and $35/year for Kindergarten. Families with more than two students will not pay more than $140.
You can use the receipt for this fee for childcare expenses when filing your income tax.
Charging lunchtime fees will recover the cost of providing supervision by staff. Regina Public Schools charges a similar fee, and other urban school divisions in Saskatchewan will implement lunchroom supervision fees in September 2022.
Families of all students staying at school over the noon hour will be asked to pay this fee in September using SchoolCash. There is an option to split payments if needed. The fee is transferable within the Regina Catholic School Division.
Seven schools operating on an adjusted school day with a 30-minute lunchbreak (Holy Rosary, Sacred Heart, St. Augustine, St. Francis, St. Michael, St. Maria Faustina, and St. Luke) are exempt.
We recognize some families are not able to pay. We understand. We will not ask schools to follow up for unpaid fees.
