SUPPLY LISTS 2021/2022:

Thank you for your patience as we have navigated our current conditions, complying with directions from Prairie Spirit and the Saskatchewan Health Authority to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for your children. Our main priority is the safety and well-being of your children and with this at the front of our planning, we have adjusted school supply lists for this year.  

We will not be sharing school supplies as this will lessen contact between individuals. Therefore, some items normally supplied by the school are now on the student supply list. Headphones for use with computers, iPads and Chromebooks are added to this year’s supply list. 

Students in grades will be required to wear masks when social distancing of 2 metres or greater is not possible. Proper hand washing is encouraged. The School Division will provide hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes for use at school.
