September 25, 2020 Community Update
Earlier today, the Chief Provincial Public Health Officer announced that the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region will be moved to the Orange/Restricted level under the Province’s Pandemic Response System effective Monday, September 28, 2020.
Health orders under this new level are being applied in a focused manner and do not currently change any of the measures related to schools or child care centres.
This means that schools remain in the Yellow (Caution) level and will re-open for students on Monday as under the same protocols that have been placed since the start of the school year. Guidance on masks in schools and on school buses remains the same. This is being monitored regularly.
We are working closely with the Department of Education and education partners to ensure that as the risk level across regions of the province changes, our schools are ready to respond and adapt. This may mean remote learning when the risk level increases whether at the classroom, school, or regional level.
School divisions have been planning for scenarios that include moving to remote learning after the lessons learned in the spring, and as the risk level increases, the system will look at ensuring there are alternatives for students and families for continued learning options during times where the risk levels are higher.
Please know that when your children arrive at school on Monday morning, our schools will be clean and safe for teaching and learning.
We are in this together. Our staff remain dedicated to keeping each other and our students safe. I am asking that every member of the larger extended Pembina Trails family do their part. Please be mindful of the advice given by Dr. Roussin, both at school and in our personal lives. We each have a part to play in keeping our schools safe.
