Communication Tools

School Messenger

Text “YES” to the number “978338”

The school uses School Messenger to communicate with families. Some of these messages come as emails whereas others arrive as text messages (SMS). In order to receive the text messages, you need to opt-in by texting the message “YESto the number “978338“. In emergent situations such as a lockdown or bus cancellation, it is important that we are able to keep families up to date. If you do not opt-in to receive messages, you may not be aware of situations as they arise.

Edsby

Edsby is our school’s communication tool, grade book, attendance database. We encourage all parents, guardians and students to get signup to use Edsby. Once signed up, you may download a free app that simplifies the use of Edsby’s services. The code for the app is “SRSD119”.

To explore the many features offered by Edsby, please click here.

Facebook

The school has a Facebook page where we post updates and photos of student activities and student learning. We often use the school Facebook page as an additional way to communicate with our school community. Please consider following our school Facebook page. Click here to access the page.

School Supplies

You will find the school supply lists here. You have two options available for purchasing school supplies.

  1. You may order directly from schoolstart.ca by following the instructions on the specific grades. The supplies are usually shipped directly to the school within a few days of ordering.
  2. You may take the list and purchase the supplies from a store of your choosing.

School Transportation

We currently have five school buses that pick up out-of-town students. Students must live within the Debden School catchment area in order to ride a bus. Unfortunately, the buses are not permitted to pick up students that are currently living on reserve. Please click here to access the SRPSD transportation request page.

Student Expectations

The student handbook covers all expectations that the school has for the students. Here are a few points of interest that are listed in our handbook:

  • Respect – Students are expected to show respect for themself, others, authority and property.
  • Lunch Break – Students from grades 9-12 have the privilege of going up town at lunch. Students from grades 7-8 will need a parent note if they are permitted to go up town at lunch. Students are expected to behave respectfully and appropriately if they are leaving at noon. We do not deal lightly with studnets who get into trouble in the community over the lunch break. If this is the case, students will not be permitted to leave and we expect parents support on this matter.
  • Cell Phones – Occasionally teachers may allow students to use their phones during class to support student learning. However, if a cell phone is being used without permission, it will be removed from the students possession. 1st violation – cell phone is confiscated until the end of the school day, 2nd violation – cell phone is confiscated until parents can come to the school to claim the item, 3rd violation – principal, parents and student will meet to discuss the ongoing problem.
  • Headwear – Our school and community firmly belive that a school is a formal institution and it should be treated as such. Therefore, we do not allow students to wear hats, toques, hoods in the school. On Fridays, students may choose to pay 1$ to wear a hat or toque, this money is donated to charity or to a local non-profit organization.
  • Tardiness – Be on time – Our school will not tolerate students who are unable to get to class on time. Students are not to be loitering in the hallways after the bell has rung. Parents will be notified and expected to support the school on this matter.
  • Vaping / Smoking – As per the Saskatchewan Tobacco and Vapour Product Control Act, it is strickly prohibited to smoke or vape on school grounds. Individuals doing so may face criminal charges of fines from $150-$500. If caught, the contraband will be taken away and parents will be contacted.
