Summer Transportation Department Hours

Please be advised that the Regina Public School Board Transportation Department will be open over the summer months at regular office hours 8:00am to 4:25pm. (Excluding stat holidays)  If you have an address change or an inquiry please do not hesitate to phone, fax, or email. The cutoff date for changes (if you qualify) is July 22rd, 2011.  This will ensure your student's transport will start on August 30th, 2011.   All changes received after this date will not commence for transport until September 7th, 2011.

The initial cutoff is established so that parent route notification can be done through the mail the first week in August.  This ensures that the routes sent out the first week in August are the same on August 30th, 2011, the first day of school.  Subsequent route changes requiring parent notification are done after this point.  The September 7th, 2011 cutoff ensures that there is enough time to notify all parents of changing route times.

Phone: 791-8245 or791-8251

June Band News

JAM June Band Notes - 2011

However, the lunch and afternoon activities for the grade 6s have been cancelled as the event occurs away from the school and requires noon hour supervision. Refunds will be issued to those students who have already paid their $15 trip fee.

We will be collecting board office owned and equity provided instruments from the grade 7/8s at this lesson. The grade 6 instruments will be collected at Johnson following their concert on Jun. 3rd.

A few parting words . . .

Music is forever; music should grow and mature with you, following you right on up until you die.

(Paul Simon)

Education in music is most sovereign because more than anything else rhythm and harmony find their way to the innermost soul and take strongest hold upon it. (Plato)

 

Have a great summer and hope to see you back in our Johnson Area Music family next fall!
