Restriction of Services Sanction effective March 12, 2020 until Further Notice

On March 9, 2020, the Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation (STF) announced that it will be implementing sanctions beginning Thursday, March 12, 2020.

As a result of this Restriction of Services from the STF, the North East School Division will be:

  • Cancelling all extra-curricular activities, which may include all practices, games, tournaments, drama and music-related activities, and all school clubs. Please contact your school for details re individual activities.
  • May change bus pick-up and drop off times. The Transportation Department will contact impacted families.
  • For students that are not transported by school bus, please ensure that students do not arrive any earlier than 15 minutes before school and that they be prepared to leave no later than 15 minutes after school.
  • We anticipate there will be no impact to noon-hour supervision at this time.

We respect the collective bargaining rights of all North East School Division employees. For the time being and, unless otherwise advised, all classes and curricular school activities will continue as scheduled. Our focus is always on student safety and in the event of any job action, minimizing disruption to North East School Division students' learning.

If we have any information or changes to school operations that you need to know about, we will share with families as quickly as possible. We will share information through a variety of means including current and important updates on our website, as well as through school messenger.
