Black History Month

Black History Month is held during February every year. This month provides an opportunity to share and learn about the legacy and ongoing contributions and achievements of Black Canadians. This year's theme (“February and Forever: Celebrating Black History today and every day) focuses on the transformative work that Black communities have and are continuing to contribute to society, and celebrates the many achievements of Black Canadians. At Balfour Collegiate, we acknowledge the importance of celebrating the achievements and reconciling past events in order to grow and strengthen as a community.

 

How We Report Cases of COVID-19

January 11, 2022 -- Regina Public Schools communicates incidents of cases of COVID-19 in schools. The school division also reports if a classroom has moved to remote learning. The school division does not currently report on individual case numbers in schools.

Why the changes?

We used to report case numbers. In 2021, individual cases, whether they were in students or adults, were officially announced and provided by Saskatchewan Health Authority. That is no longer the case. As of the return to classes on January 4, 2022, Regina Public Schools relies on notification of cases from parents, guardians, students and staff members. They have been asked to self-report to their schools/workplaces.
