The Government of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation (STF) have been unable to negotiate a new agreement.
The Regina Catholic School Teachers' Association (RCSTA) and STF have given us notice that teachers will withdraw their voluntary services. The notice given to the Regina Catholic School Division is that this Restriction of Services sanction will begin Thursday, March 12, 2020.
As a result of the restriction of services from the STF all extra-curricular activities in all our schools are cancelled. There will be limited supervision outside of school hours. Student-led conferences will continue as scheduled.
It is important to note that while teachers are continuing to provide supervision for 15 minutes before classes begin, 15 minutes after school ends, and during the lunch hour, students will not be permitted in school outside of those hours. Students should not arrive for school earlier than 15 minutes prior to the first bell, and should leave in their usual manner (walking, division transportation, parent pick up, etc.) no later than 15 minutes after school.
As always, our top priority is the safety of students and staff. Your cooperation in staying informed will help ensure all students remain safe. Updates will be posted on our website, www.rcsd.ca.
