COVID-19 Protocols

We are looking forward to beginning the 2022-2023 school year with a return to in-person learning and providing students with full access to enriching school experiences including clubs and extracurricular activities. It is time to focus on re-establishing relationships and routines in support of student learning, success and well-being.
The health, safety, and well-being of students and staff remain a top priority, and all public health updates can be found at COVID-19 Information for Manitobans. As students are welcomed back to full in-person learning this fall, the government of Manitoba continues to recommend the following public health fundamentals are applied as we live with COVID-19, including:
  • continuing to request staff and students to monitor daily for signs and symptoms of COVID-19;
  • continuing public health measures and infection prevention practices such as ventilation improvements, staying home when sick, frequent hand washing with easy access to hand hygiene products, practicing respiratory etiquette (i.e. covering coughs and sneezes), and routine cleaning and disinfection protocols with a focus on high-touch surfaces and common areas including washrooms; public health updates:;
  • encouraging students and staff to be vaccinated (COVID-19 and routine immunizations) when eligible; 
  • continuing to follow public health guidance on mask use and ensuring that individual choice regarding mask use is respected (see;
  • continuing to have masks and rapid antigen tests available for staff and students; and,
  • advising schools to have plans in place for when students become ill at school and for different scenarios, in the event that additional public health measures need to be re-implemented (e.g. physical distancing and public health mandated mask use).
