Update: Teacher Sanctions

March 10, 2020

The Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation (STF) have announced sanctions, to be implemented as of Thursday, March 12. As a result of the Restriction of Services, Northwest School Division will be:

  • Cancelling all NWSD extra-curricular activities, which may include all practices, games, tournaments, drama, school clubs and field trips outside of regular school hours.
  • May change bus pick-up and drop off times. Rural bus drivers will contact any impacted families directly if there are any changes.

Important information for parents:

If there are any changes to Meadow Lake city bus pick up times, they will be posted on our division website and the school will be notified. The information will also be shared with local radio.

For students not transported by NWSD, please ensure that students do not arrive any earlier than 15 minutes before school and that they be prepared to leave no later than 15 minutes after school.

We respect the collective bargaining rights of all Northwest School Division employees. For the time being, and unless otherwise advised, all classes and activities within school hours will continue as scheduled.

As new information is made available, we will strive to share with our school community as quickly as possible. We share information through a variety of channels, including our division website –, social media channels, SchoolMessenger notices and through letters home.

Thank you for your understanding and for your support of our division and teachers. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact your school principal or the NWSD Meadow Lake office.
