7-23-20: Substitute Teacher Request
Dear Regina Families,
These unprecedented times have created many issues and challenges.
The Regina community has demonstrated the ability to overcome obstacles over and over again. This pandemic gives us the chance to show the great support that our parents provide to our school.
We have always faced a problem with having enough substitute teachers to meet the needs of our school. As we look forward to this school-year, there is a potential for that problem to be even greater. If it fits into your life and schedule, we ask you to look into obtaining a substitute authorization. Please pass on this information to anyone you know who may be interested in helping us out this year.
Information for obtaining a substitute authorization can be found at https://www.mbaea.org/professional-development/substitute-teach-in-iowa-schools.
Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for your support.

7-15-20: Board of Education Approves Plan to Start School Year In the Classroom. (Click arrow to read more)
Our Return-to-Learn Committee has been working diligently to prepare for the upcoming school year. After careful discussion, thought, and consideration, the Regina Board of Education has approved a plan of starting the school year with our students in the classroom. However as part of our plan, a full comprehensive on-line option will be available to support our learners and families that choose to do so.
In the classroom and on campus, we will be taking necessary precautions to protect our students and staff. As part of this plan, face coverings will be mandatory on-site at Regina for all 2nd-12th grade students, staff, and visitors. Face coverings are strongly recommended for preschool, kindergarten, and first grade.
We will continue to provide further details regarding safety protocols and procedures as they evolve. We are committed to our Return-to-Learn plan, but keep in mind that this situation is fluid and may require us to make modifications to our plan. Updates from the Return-to-Learn Committee will continue to appear here on our website under the COVID-19 tab.
Please know that our primary objective is to keep our students, families, and staff safe and healthy while providing the level of education our families are accustomed to at Regina.
Please feel free to reach out to Celeste Vincent at 337-5739 (Elementary Principal) or Glenn Plummer at 338-5436 (Jr./Sr. High Principal) with any questions or concerns.
7-15-20: Regina Catholic Education Center will be releasing an official statement on our Return-to-Learn plan this evening after we are able to convene an impromptu Board session.
