March 13, 2020
The Minister of Education in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer has announced the scheduled closure of all Manitoba public schools beginning March 23, 2020 and extending through April 10, 2020. The provincial announcement was made at 2:30pm today. Schools will remain open the week of March 16-20.
As noted in our previous email, we respect the rights of parents/guardians to keep their children at home during a pandemic. Safety is a concern for all. Those choosing to exercise this option during the week of March 16-20 should inform their child’s school as per regular absence procedures.
As noted in our previous email, this situation is evolving rapidly. We will continue to inform and update as we become aware.
