We are eager to welcome back our students to in-classroom learning for the first time since March 2020. All our lives were affected greatly by the Covid-19 pandemic and we are more excited than ever to get back to the daily business of learning together at Peacock Collegiate beginning September 8. I sincerely hope that everyone had an enjoyable summer break and were able to direct time and energy as some things you enjoy doing.
So, here we are at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. It is the beginning of another fresh school year full of promise, opportunities, and future memories. Despite any restrictions and adjustments we make for the safety of our students and staff, at the heart of the work we do is ensuring the best possible teaching and learning occurs each day. You will notice many changes to how we operate; masks, block system schedule, noon hours, extracurriculars, lack of lockers, safety protocols, and more. However, the core work that our teachers and staff do each day will remain the same as we focus on learning together. Some things will be different this year and some things will remain the same. For some this will be an easy adjustment and for others it may be harder. However, I am confident we will figure out the best way to keep everyone safe, and ensure optimum learning will occur.
You should expect more communication from the school this year as we use My School Sask more regularly in classrooms and as we provide weekly updates to all families each Friday in the “Friday Updates” email. We encourage you to contact us when you have questions, or suggestions, as we value your feedback and are constantly looking to be a better school.

Thank you to our fantastic facility operator staff for all their efforts over the summer season. While most staff and students are on summer break our facilities people are busy cleaning, restoring, and preparing the entire school for the upcoming school year. Many classrooms, doors, lockers, and corridors were painted this year as well as a few surprise custom updates were done in the student concession (Al’s Lunch). I’m sure students will notice the change once back to the school.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to working with you all over the year ahead!
