The Sisters of the Presentation of Mary have hired a consultant, after Blessed Marie Rivier School shut its doors. 

In a press release, the Sisters said St. Joseph's Developments Ltd. will help them "identify a meaningful future plan for the property." The building at 1405 Bishop Pascal Place will continue to be the Sisters' home for now.

Previous Rivier students in Grades 9 to 12 will transition to programming at St. Mary High School. Grade 7 and 8 students already enrolled for next year will be moved to a classroom inside St. Mary and operate as Blessed Marie Rivier within the school. This system will be evaluated by the end of the 2017-18 school year.

The Sisters of the Presentation of Mary have been a presence in Saskatchewan since 1903 and in Prince Albert since 1925. They have provided catholic education ever since.
