We acknowledge we are on Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Metis. We pay our respect to the First Nation and Metis ancestors of this place and reaffirm our relationship with one another. Delisle Elementary School is situated in the town of Delisle, located approximately 40 km southwest of Saskatoon on Highway 7. We are part of the Prairie Spirit School Division. Our school provides education to students in Kindergarten to Grade Six. Our enrolment fluctuates around the 190-200 student mark. In addition to our classrooms, our facility contains a gymnasium, visual arts classroom, Rejuvenation Room and a resource center (library). Our playground has been upgraded and complements an extensive green area complete with basketball courts, tarmac with games, soccer pitches and track and field facilities.
Our school offers the following extra programs to our students:
Extra-curricular: in a typical year, activities such as cross country running, track and field, intramurals are offered to students to participate in if they wish to.
Inter-house: every student (K-6) is placed on a house team upon enrolling at our school. Throughout the year, they have the opportunity to earn points for their house by dressing up for Spirit Days, recycling household items, participating in House League games at noon and competing at our Track Day. There are four house teams, Crusaders, Spartans, Trojans and Vikings.
Band: grade 5 and 6 students can join the Prairie Spirit West Band. Instruction is given in-school on a regular 6-day school cycle. Second-year band students also meet in Asquith once per week to rehearse with band students from 6 other schools, during a typical school year.

We continue to be an allergen aware school as we have students who have a life threatening allergy to peanuts and nuts. Please do not send any peanut butter or products that contain peanuts/nuts to school in your child’s lunch kit. The list of ingredients should always be read on any prepackaged lunches and snacks.
Regular attendance is a vital factor in children’s learning and development. Parents are encouraged to call or email the classroom teacher or school if their child will be absent. Anticipated absences can be written in the agenda. If you do not contact us, our automated system will attempt to contact you to ensure that your child has not encountered problems on their way to school. The answering machine can pick up messages left at any time.
Students should not arrive at school before 8:40 as there is no supervision until that time.
Please let your bus driver know of any changes to the morning or after school bussing plans for your child. It becomes especially important if your child has left the school part way through the day or is picked up by someone. Please discuss with your bus driver the best way to communicate between each other for these updates.
All bus cancellations are prominently posted on the Prairie Spirit website (www.spiritsd.ca) by 7:00 a.m. each school day. An App called MyStop will be used to communicate bus cancellations to rural bus families. Please contact the school for your log in credentials or reference the MyStop information in PowerSchool for your child(ren).
Cancellation announcements are also provided to FM radio stations: The Bull 92.9 and C95 and AM stations: News Talk 650 CKOM and CJWW 600.*
There is now a Bus Hotline 306-683-2805 that parents can call to hear if there are any buses that are not running.
This service automatically cuts in after four rings or if the line is busy. Please leave a message and someone will return your call once available. If you have a message that is urgent please try again until someone answers.
Field trips are an important part of our curriculum offering our students many learning opportunities outside of the classroom. Sometimes parents are asked to drive; sometimes a bus is rented. Volunteers who transport students require a Criminal Record Check prior to transporting students other than family members as well as a Driver Authorization Form.
Money will be collected for admission and bussing costs for these special activities.
Mrs. Linda Peters is available to meet with students about personal, family and school issues. Her schedule is posted on the counselling door, and she is typically at DES on Wednesdays. Families are invited to call Mrs. Peters directly if they would like to discuss family or personal issues that are affecting their child. An appointment can also be made by contacting the school. Mrs. Peters can be contacted at our school at
Our public health nurse is available for immunization, classroom instruction, and consultation. Ann Nelson can be reached at 306-655-4284.
Parents and students complete an Acceptable Use Agreement, outlining what is expected of students when using the computer. All computers are monitored for usage by students and staff and unacceptable conduct will result in loss of privileges.
Hand held technological devices such as: Ipods, Ipads, cell phones, video games, etc. are typically used on bus rides to and from home. Thay are usually kept in backpacks during the day and not to be used at recess. Classroom teachers will develop a practice that works for them in their classroom. They are often requested for instructional purposes during class time by an adult. The school is not responsible for loss or breakage of any of these devices.
Students are welcomed to ride their bike, skateboard, roller blades, or scooter to and from school. All of this equipment shall be parked during the school day in designated areas. Students are required to walk/carry this equipment through bus lanes at dismissal and arrival times for safety reasons. Helmets are strongly encouraged.
If students or parents have concerns or questions about an issue at school, please follow this communication process:
Our Superintendent for our school is Dave Carter. If you need to contact him, Dave can be reached at 306-683-2834 at the Prairie Spirit School Division office.
