As of Dec 1, Edsby will be our primary tool for communication, including the Bear Blast (the Bear Blast will continue to be posted on Facebook and on our website.
Currently, Edsby does not send a notification if a message is sent, so it is strongly recommended that parents check the app once per day for any important messages. If you set notifications through your email, you will be notified when a message is sent. Contact the school or refer to the Edsby help documents for assistance with this.
Emergent messages will continue to be sent via messenger.
If staff receive a message in any format after 4:30 pm, it is not expected that they will answer until after 8:30 the following morning.
We recognize that some parents may message in the evening when the topic is fresh in their mind; all that we ask is for your understanding in that staff may not answer until the following day. As always, we will deal with emergent situations as expediently as possible. In an emergent situation, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to call or text.
Thank you for your understanding and support in ensuring that our staff is able to rest and recharge..
Athletes of the Week
This week's Male Athlete of the Week is Zack Kirkland. Zack is a consistent player at our intramurals and is a great leader, no matter what he is doing. Zack always has time to stop and talk to the younger students who look up to him. Although his choice in hockey teams is questionable (Bruins) his character and commitment are not. Zach is a great athlete and an all-around great leader in our school.
Congratulations to both our athletes and thank you for being an awesome part of the Bears family!

When Should I Keep My Child Home?
- Have a fever.
- Are coughing (more than just occasional)
- Sneezing (more than just occasional)
- Have an excessively runny nose (have to blow their nose multiple times a day).
- Vomiting (outside of motion sickness)
The principle that we use is that if a student is expelling something from their body, they should likely stay at home until it stops.
Our teachers are fully prepared to support students at home who are required to isolate or who are sick for extended periods of time.
If students are at school and displaying any of the above symptoms or any other COVID symptoms, parents will be asked to come and get them and take them home. We will then work with the families to determine when it will be safe for the child to return to school (in many cases, it is when the symptoms have stopped).
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause to our families, but feel that in light of the new health orders, it is needed to ensure that all students, staff, and families are safe and that face to face learning can continue at PPCS.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please contact us at the school at any time.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the new health orders, we would encourage you to contact the Saskatchewan Health Authority or your local MLA.
We recognize the challenges of the ever changing situation, but remain committed to the idea that...together, we got this
