Update June 25, 2021
As the 2020-21 school year wraps up, we know there are many questions about what fall will look like in our school. While this is an evolving situation, here is what we know so far.
Over the summer, the provincial government is expected to provide direction to all Saskatchewan school divisions regarding fall operations. The main considerations will be provincial vaccination rates and COVID case numbers. Since it is hard to know where the province will be two months from now, guidance regarding school operations will come closer to the start of the new school year.
With vaccination rates increasing and COVID cases decreasing, we are hopeful school restrictions will be reduced for September. Saskatoon Public Schools will continue to work with local public health officials on plans for school operations that are supportive of student learning and protect the health of students and staff members. Plans for the fall may differ between elementary schools and collegiates, given the current approved age for vaccines at 12 years of age and older.
Once we have received direction, we will share the pertinent details with all school families ahead of the start of the new year. Thank you for your support and understanding this year as we navigated many new and unique challenges.
