We Dodged the Bullet, but Barely
Although we were spared from the new measures, I worry about numbers that are continually on the rise (300+ on Saturday). At PPCS we firmly believe that the best place for students to learn is in the classroom with the teacher and as such that is our first instructional choice. However, we are also prepared to support students at home, both short and longer-term. To date several of our families have not completed the sample assignments sent home by our 1-6 teachers Please take the time to complete these assignments if you are able to ensure that, if needed, your child would be able to continue their education at home. We don't have a lot of certainties right now, but we have been assured by the ministry that education will continue for all students, regardless of which phase of reopen we find ourselves in and that education will be mandatory for all students K-12. For this reason, we need to make sure that we are able to fully support you and your student regardless of the situation we may find ourselves in. All students have been exposed to Google Classroom and/or Moodle and should be able to guide you through accessing and submitting the practice assignment. If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher at the school (306) 278 2288.
No matter what happens, know that your child's education is our first and foremost concern and that we will be with you every step of the way to ensure that you are fully supported throughout this time of craziness. The only way we can get through this is together, together we got this!

Block 1/Term 1 Report Cards
Parents and Guardians
The North East School Division is preparing for a transition to a new grade reporting program. Due to this preparation, we will not be emailing report cards. Instead, we direct you to view the parent portal to see your child's grades. While this process may be slightly different than past years, we are dedicated to keeping families up to date with continued access to your child's grades throughout the school year.
To see your child’s current grades:
We look forward to sharing our new grade and progress reporting system with you for the 2021-2022 school year.
Please note, the following classes have a course end grade... science 7, social studies 8, science 9, wellness 10, science 10, health science 20, PAA 20/30 (industrial arts).
Grades will be finalized and available for view on Nov 17, 2020. A message containing the above instructions as well as class-specific comments for your student will be emailed to you on Nov 17, 2020, as well.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact the school at (306) 278 2288.
The way our attendance system works, on a snow day all bus students are automatically marked absent. The teacher will make a change if they are here. As they are marked absent because of the bus, you will not get a phone call if they are not here. For that reason, it is crucial that you are communicating with your student regarding their safe arrival at school should they decide to drive. We always ask our students to inform us if someone is not here who should be as an added level of certainty.
